Just installed SSM 188.8.131.523 in my XP home since a few days and i am going very slow and cautious with settings after a previous version incident which caused freezing and uninstall. This time i installed according to old rules with most apps non working , enabled only Applications,StartUp and Services Modules,leaving the Registry for later, and limited myself to giving the running ,Trusted all, Processes and Applications Rules (most of them) just the F3-Allowed status. I ran nearly everything previously during the Learning Mode,including ShadowUser,and i guess that by now,after 2 days of learning mode and 2 days of continuous normal mode usage, i am well covered -in respect of SSM knowledge of my pc. Still,unforeseen events may happen,so my first question is: is it feasible-normal to revert on special occasions to Learning Mode without somehow upsetting the internal workings of SSM? I had just to do this in order to UDF format a DVD for Acronis which was recalcitrant because a Registry cleaner had deleted some legit values and the thing didnt work properly at first,so i preferred to create an entire Acronis image as a trial in order that SSM could get well informed about it. Also: what is generally preferable, to allow just the running of a program or the allowing of the parent application? As this second choice would define the Process/Apps as Advanced in SSM, if i dont make any 'Advanced' choice in Application Rules (as i plan to do at least for a few days more),will those Advanced Rules be somehow 'impaired'? In other words, do i have to do that mandatorily for a correct functioning of the program? (At the moment i have just Hewlett-Packard/Digital Imaging, verclisid.exe, and aAcroRd32.exe as brownish 'Advanced' Rules-because i allowed the Parent opening (Explorer) when they were running-Edit: i am in a limited account now ).
