    I believe there is already some registry protection present in OA without the addition of rule sets. I will have to check with them over at Emsisoft.

    Nope, there is not. OA already protects sensitive system areas. The shields are intended to introduce additional protection for the not generic (user specific and personal) data (documents, source codes, paintings, movies, any other projects). The shields rules override OA own rules if they intersect.

    by default - following paths are guarded -

    1) c:\*, document&settings
    2) HKLM/Software/*

    i have added my custom picture/document/software paths to fileshield. Allowing to access to it only by trusted programs and a deny access to unknown and untrusted programs.

    Rightnow, i have small problem in saving the documents into these protected areas when file sheild is activated. I created a thread over at OA forums and an devloper is actively looking into it.

    -- Same here! Left one pc (XP SP3) with CIS though. I seem to see that OA Premium's File Shield actually does shield the files or folders but it let's the user see the contents. You get it as a read-only. While in CIS if you click a "Blocked folder" it will be blocked and you will not see it's contents(same as Outpost Pro). Saw a post at OA forums about Windows still having to view supposedly locked files by OA. Quite nice observation LINK

    Yes. When i save something, (say excel), the excel app will not be responding for around 1 min or so and then the sheet gets saved. This can be reproduced through firefox/ie even.

    Thanks,
