    Suddenly PG submerges me with alerts: "Outpost.exe was blocked from reading winlogon.exe". I try to allow outpost to read but the line is greyed out. Now it happens every few minutes. Who has become bonkers - Outpost or PG ?

    If you are using Windows XP this may be due to Outpost tracking logon/logoff activity (see the Outpost forum thread wl_hook.dll - please explain!!). This is needed for Fast User Switching support.

    Does Outpost have the ability to Read protected applications in PG's Protection tab? If so, and you are still getting the alerts, try closing and restarting Outpost (disconnecting from the Internet first).

    It seems you hit the nail on the head Paranoid: I've closed Outpost, then restarted it (with PG in learning mode):for the last half of an hour I have had no alerts (and Outpost has been allowed to read protected applications, as you can see from the screenshot). Just to alleviate my ignorance, could you tell me what may have happened before ? Thank you very much and best regards
