    I've noticed that some applications in the "List of authorized or blocked applications" are duplicates. The ones that are duplicated have the same path, but one is the "long" name (e.g. C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox\firefox.exe) and one is the old DOS short name (e.g. C:\Progra~1\Mozill~1\firefox.exe).

    Is there a reason for this? Any help is appreciated.

    Hi RyanM :)

    One entry is the program runned by "itself" and the other one called by an other application like url in email program for example...

    The checksum of the these entries are different and it's normal to have 2 entries...

    :)

    Climenole, thanks for the prompt reply :D
    I had a feeling that that may have been the case. The only two programs (at the moment) that have the old DOS format are those which have been called by other programs. I wasn't 100% sure if it was a bug with LnS, but now I know that it is not.

    Thanks again!

    Ryan
