    if you have block all new files from running in program checksum will programs like bo clean in which i have set to auto update be blocked from updating or would just be better to do a manuel update.

    If you allowed BoClean to permanently execute, it will continue to execute even if you have 'Block new programs from executing' enabled. This is only for new processes that aren't in the list yet.

    I checked by installing an old update from 3/3/04 and then enabling "Block all new...". When I checked for an update from the BOClean GUI, PG's logs showed:

    28 Mar 20:55:33 - [EXECUTION] c:\documents and settings\nicholas\desktop\411upd.exe with commandline "c:\documents and settings\nicholas\desktop\411upd.exe" was ALLOWED to run
    28 Mar 20:56:01 - Block new and changed applications from running has been enabled
    28 Mar 20:56:11 - [EXECUTION] c:\progra~1\nsclean\boclean\boc4upd.exe with commandline c:\progra~1\nsclean\boclean\boc4upd.exe was ALLOWED to run
    28 Mar 20:56:29 - [EXECUTION] c:\docume~1\nicholas\locals~1\temp\update.exe with commandline c:\docume~1\nicholas\locals~1\temp\update.exe was BLOCKED from running

    I believe updating via the GUI or automatically will fail because update.exe's MD5 will change with every update, making it a "new" file.
