    Dear Jason_0

    I found a -presumible- bug in the latest build of RD updated yesterday.

    Everything worked fine until I tried to change wallpaper. To reproduce the situation please follow this steps:

    1. Double click any bitmap to open it in the windows built-in browser.
    2. Then right-click to show context menu and choose "Set as wallpaper" -or so, my system is in spanish.
    3. Cool, you just did it!

    At this point I find not the desktop itself but the taskbar too hanged -freezed. The good thing is the whole system didn't crashed at all because I pop the taskman and managed to restart the system. By the way, drwatsn32.exe was running at this time, showing clearly that an error was around the corner.

    I hope this feedback helps you out, to my thinking you've coded a very great application.

    Best regards,

    Martín

    What rules are you running exactly in RegDefend? The standard ones or tweaked ones? The last time I tried changing wallpaper and resolution with RD enabled there were some issues which I thought were fixed. They were in regards to the system appearing frozen because an alert was supposed to be shown but couldn't.

    I'm using standard rules set - I didn't knew there was an alternative set.

    And yes, the problem is EXACTLY THE SAME as you say.
