    Hello,

    I have a question here that maybe someone can help me with (may take Joe to answer). Is there a security risk in an application such as AppGuard preventing WRSA from writing to memory (like in one instance to the memory of IE)? Does this in any way diminish or block the effectiveness of WRSA?

    Yes it would - WSA needs to access IE's memory to be able to load its protection code within the browser.

    Thanks Joe! I just wanted to verify as I had been given differing opinions.

    This doesn't need a new thread IMO. I suggest asking a moderator to close this thread and merge it into existing the AppGuard 3.x 32/64 Bit thread where you are already participating.
