    Thanks for the update. :) This is a very useful little program.

    I still kind of wish that you could have offered the option to install or not install. But I do see the value of the auto-immunize feature too.

    Regarding the NTFS flash drive support... The installer refers the user to read the help file before activating the feature but where is the help file to read during that process? Also, if one does activate the NTFS feature, does this change the way FAT/FAT32 drives are handled? Or are they the same as before?

    Yes, but it would complicate things for basic users. However you can still install on a PC and then take the executable from the %ProgramFiles% directory as a standalone portable solution. The only other thing in the %ProgramFiles% directory is the scheduler to auto-vaccinate inserted USB drives.

    True, it's not accessible until after install. Sorry about that. Once you activate NTFS support however it does not affect or change the way FAT/FAT32 are handled. We use different techniques for FAT vs NTFS.
