    When installing PG, the program will automatically add a number of programs to the protected list. For some of these programs it will automatically enable allow flags as well as other options. I found it strange that when it automatically assigned allow flags to these programs, it checked every allow flag. I was thining that some processes might need a few of the allow flags, while others would need a different combination of allow flags, as opposed to all needing all allow flags. Was PG correct to check all of these allow flags?

    Just to test it, I've turned each of these allow flags to OFF (unchecked). Now waiting to see what shows up in the PG log.

    P.S. It's very interesting and educational to see how the various processes interact with others via the PG log. :D

    Hi, Dazed_and_Confused

    Me thinks you will have the Gray PG and RedX soon.

    I set the ones you are talking about as in this post by Pilli:- #3
    And have not had a RedX since.

    Take Care,
    TheQuest :cool:

    Yes, agree with TheQuest [hi mate :) ] I left any original setting PG installed with as is. did not change.

    I thought if that was how DCS designated the PG default install for basic windows files, then that was fine by me.

    Cheers, TAS
