    Odd question: Is there any way to manually change the number shown for the Infected objects found counter on the main Ewido window?

    I tested Ewido's detection using a test file, so my Infected objects found counter shows 1. I'd like to return it to zero so I don't continually have to keep in mind that the "1" was due to a test, not a real detection...

    Thanks. I looked at the ewido registry key, and since they encrypt it, was hoping to save myself some work. Oh well. :)

    Edit: I got it squared away. I went to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\ewido\config, backed up the whole key, then deleted values immediately under it one-by-one until I found the one that reset the value (by checking the Ewido window each time), and made a note of what that value was. Then, I restored the key from my REG file, and went back and deleted just the one value that made the difference.

    Of course, this isn't a recommended procedure, don't try this at home, blah blah...
