    Hi xiaolin,

    Thanks for the new beta :). Is this the tooltip I should see after I disable Show Detailed Tooltips? If it is, it appears only for a few apps in my Applications Rules - Normal tree. I get no tooltip, for example, when I hover over the \firedaemon.exe rule above the \mainserv.exe rule.

    Edit: I only see this on Vista SP2. On XP SP3 and Windows 7 RTM, I see no tooltips for any app after disabling Show Detailed Tooltips.

    Xiaolin,

    Running great here. The usability improvements are most welcome. Being able to copy and paste rules is going to come in very handy. Thanks!

    xiaolin in next update are you able to add an option in the logs settings, where
    "ONLY denied actions are logged" ??

    because at the moment while in learning mode all permitted actions are logged. it would be less work for MD and save on CPU usage.

    After 48 hours running the Beta, no issues at all.

    Thanks Xiaolin MD Rocks!

    (Unrelated note, is there any chance of "Replace Regedit" option for Registry Workshop in the future?) ;)

    Thanks for the test.

    I will do some research on how to replace the default Windows regedit.

    Excellent xiaolin, thank you very much. I did try by using replacer and replacing regedit.exe with RegistryWorkshop.exe and putting Registry Workshops other files in /Windows/ directory. It did work, except using "Open in Regedit" inside other applications like CCleaner would open Registry Workshop good but not jump to the key locations.

    Thanks again. :)

    Nonsense question, but does this beta expire or is it indefinite?

    Thanks EASTER

    It doesn't expire, but you need a license or it acts like the trial
