    As a fresh student learning computer programming, I am trying pg2 free version, I got convenience when I want to do my exercises with doing programming - everytime to run a newly compiled one and gave it a run, I have to answer to pg to let it go; but if I disabled pg's exe protection when doing such things, I feel not safe for my computer since others can run by that, besides while doing it, I can surf the internet (always-on connection). Is there a way out and safe for this situation?
    TIA.

    Hi bonbe & welcome, You can switch of the checksumming part of Process Guard by swithing it off during your testing.
    Protection menu - Progrm Checksum protection and untick.
    You will still have protection on all of your Protected list items, remember to re-enable when your testing is finished.

    Hi bonbe,

    I am programming too, and I simply "allow once" each new build starting of my programs ;)

    regards,

    It can be a little bit of a hassle for programmers since you have EXE's which change so often. Whilst developing the GUI part of Process Guard, every build required me to click on "Allow" , which I found a little bothersome but it doesn't take very long to do I must admit.

    There is no real way you can work-around this issue without compromising security.
