    Everytime I run CIS, beta or non-beta, it will make software "disappear", not start, not exist - anything - and that with no data on it whatsoever.

    Is that just me?

    On my MacBook Pro running Boot Camp, the Boot Camp service would disappear, which led to my desired settings not being in action anymore. I don't think the Mac-keyboard functions even work now.

    Smart Defrag would not start on one of my systems anymore. I recall the same happened to Game Booster. Ironic that both of those are from IObit, just noting.

    It has conflicts with GameGuard in the past - that has been remedied by now in the latest beta and thank... something for that. I play a game that has GameGuard as its official hacking prevention system - I can't do anything about it!



    Anyone else seeing these signs or am I just very unlucky? :blink:

    If that is really the case you get an informative popup when something is sandboxed, I don't see the problem
    Anyway in v6 the sandbox will be virtualized

    Welcome to "default deny". Enjoy your stay. :)

    Haha :D

    ... and Lordraiden, thanks, but I got the eyes for those things, I would consider myself dumb if I didn't check unrecognized files before posting this thread.

    Well I didn't know how "new" were you with CIS

    This has nothing to do with default deny, it's probably a bug or incompatibility, better report it if CIS is the reason

    No problem at all. :thumb: My own capability is my pride and when I feel "questioned" (try to get what I mean by that :p), my mood goes way down. :)

    It doesn't feel very default-deny to me. Rather it default-restricts. Granted it works on a whitelist rather than a blacklist but it doesn't block programs it limits them.

    Default-Deny is the companys slogan if you ask me. At least it was when I used CIS around version 3.5 ;)

    I suppose it's default-deny but it just seems more like "default take action" or "default restrict" but I guess that falls under default-deny... it's just not how I think about it.
