    If you are running AppGuard 4.0, there is no longer any need to make any MG exceptions. If you are running AppGuard 3.5, it may be necessary to have these exceptions. Chrome did not work without specifying them as exceptions (at least at some point - perhaps an update to Chrome fixed the issue and perhaps that is why Opera works). If you're running AppGuard 3.5, you could try removing them from the MG exception list. If you're running AppGuard 4.0, the MG exceptions may still be in your user-defined XML file. If that is the case, you might have to restore defaults in order to get them removed since the GUI controls for MG have been removed from the product.

    I have just experienced something weird.

    When I clicked into "about" it said the installed version is 4.0.17.0 and "Announcing AppGuard Version 4.0.17.1. - For more information... - Download your upgrade now". I have downloaded the installer from the link, put AppGuard in install mode, installed and rebooted after the prompt.

    After the reboot, AppGuard was not running. I then checked the installation folder and it was empty aside from the AppGuardPolicy.xml file. The service was not installed as well. I have reinstalled the downloaded version again and in file properties it said 4.0.17.1. After another reboot AppGuard started, but I had to enter my license data again. The configuration was taken over from the previous installation. When I click on "about" I get the same message as before: "Announcing AppGuard Version 4.0.17.1. - For more information... - Download your upgrade now"

    When I tried to install for a second time, I got the same results as before. AppGuard was uninstalled instead of installed.

    Actually there is no new version of AppGuard (4.0.17.1). The executable downloaded from appguardus.com does say ...17.1 but when installed its ...17.0. I downloaded appguard from Softpedia where the version said was ...17.0 but when you look at the properties its ...17.1. Also look at the timestamp of its digital signature, its October 2013.

    Is there a way to block processes with AppGuard? Like something that you don't want running?

    Not if it's running from system space. You'd need an anti-executable for that: e.g. NVT ERP. The best you could do with AppGuard is to guard it.

    I noticed the following showing up often. Is this anything to be concerned about?

    Prevented process <Firefox> from writing to <c:\windows\system32\nvapptimestamps>.

    Thanks in Advance.

    Is there any reason to run NoVirusThanks along with Appguard? Does NVT add additional protection?

    Thanks for any information.

    It offers more granular control over executables.

    Thanks for the quick reply.

    Is there any reason to run AppGuard in addition to NVP?

    some people do cause it has an alert mode which appguard doest have but to be inform of an execution it will be a good idea to know,well I can use both if I want to to be extra protected but appguard in lockdown mode is more than enough:)well according to some folks :)

    I just found out that MBRGuard blocks the disk assessment part of Windows Experience Index from running.
