    Is there any way that I can get File Checker to only check ONCE a dayo_O That is... on demand?

    Understand my question please -- I am NOT asking for the program to be changed. Rather I am asking what *I* might possibly do -- as a work-around to achieve on-demand scanning -- within the PRESENT state oif the program.

    If there IS a way to achieve this, please be aware that I have to pull my car over to the side of the road to honk the horn.

    Ergo, the mere thought of doing techno-stuff like messing with the Windows registry causes intense constrictions in my nethermost sphincter.

    Yes, I am aware that on-demand scanning is risky. However, my small, quite elderly computer simply cannot handle any more stuff running in the background. [Me & my computer have much in common.]

    Unfortunately, FileChecker is built as a real-time scanner only - it does not store the checksum, or other data, of the files in its watch-list between runs (thus it would not work as an on-demand scanner).

    That is actually a feature I am working on for the next version, so keep watching. :)

    Count on it! I will indeed haunt these premises.

    Your program is superb. Thank you for your hard work, monitorship, and talent.
