    Worm Guard is flagging a program I use. I think it is flagging because of the file name (DVD Shrink 3.1.exe). I am positive WG is flagging it (sorry I hit allow before reading the entire message) because of the extra period in the filename. Can someone confirm this please.

    Hi,

    If thats all that is shown in the alert screen (suspicious filename) then click "Always Allow"

    Then Wormguard wont scan this file again

    Always allow? you think so?
    and what about other programs that might be really harmful? is this action safe?

    "Always allow" is on that specific program, not on everything.

    You would only use the "Always allow" for known trusted programmes :)
