    ok i have ticked the global hook protection box and i now have two logs that say msn messenger was blocked from setting a global low level mouse hook and key board hook so do i allow global hooks for msn messenger?is this causing any harm to my system when these global hooks are not allowed.

    You will get more of those logs. Just give those applications as long they are trusted (and you can trust msn messenger) the allow privileges they want.

    I have allowed msn instant messenger to set global hooks and i still get a log telling me that msnmsgr.exe was blocked from setting a low level mouse hook and also a key board hook is this any thing i should worry about i don't know why pg would block this if i have allowed it.thank you in advance for any response.

    donsan - I think it's necessary to state that one of the key factors you need to be asking yourself about before "allowing" anything is - does the program (whatever it is that's asking for an "allow") need that allow to function correctly?

    If it doesn't actually malfunction without that, I wouldn't permit it - as long as you know that the logged behavior isn't something new and potentially harmful, just live with the log entries.

    Just my .01 . Pete
