    Hi,

    I was surprised to find outpost asking me to approve the change in some dll's when I was surfing. I was using maxthon. When I used firefox at the same site, there were no requests by outpost. What gives? Can a site actually change your dll's without one's knowledge? Or was maxthon just updating its information?

    Thanks in advance

    When I used Outpost I saw this quite frequently. I'm no Outpost expert so perhaps someone else can answer, but my guess is that it's just asking for permission for new dll's that it didn't have registered yet. Nothing has actually changed..
