    Hi maddawgz, Once you have given the "Permit Always" you will not be asked again, unless the executable has changed either through update or by a malicious program.
    When in learning mode you should run all of your trusted security & internet enabled apps - reboot and then disable learning mode. Doing it that way will stop a lot of the alerts you are seeing.
    Regarding hooks, you may or may not need to allow them depending on whether you notice any degradation or loss of functionality of the program that is asking for hooks.

    Like Pilli said, hooks sometimes seem transparent to the user and in some cases may not even be needed, in which case you can leave them blocked. If you trust the program then often you'd just let it use hooks, but the ability to intercept hooks was added to help intercept keyloggers as well as DLL injection - simply but very effective :)
