    I have an unlimited license for RegDefend.

    Yesterday I installed RegDefend on my son's laptop, then I installed a firewall program. The firewall program had so many registry additions/modifications, that I spent what seemed forever clicking the Accept button on RedDefend in order to install the firewall.

    After completing the firewall installation, I clicked on the Exit button to quit RegDefend and encountered the message that if I Exit RegDefend, then I will not have the opportunity to make any registry add/modify decisions, that RegDefend will make all those decisions for me. I'm sure those automatically generated decisions will be not to allow any registry additions/modifications.

    Is there a way (short of uninstalling the software) for me to totally turn off RegDefend during the installation of trusted software so that the software's registry keys will all install, but I will not have to click the Accept button fifty million times?

    Thank you for your advice.

    Regards,
    Stro

    If you are using the standalone version of RD (2.001) there is no facility to turn off RD from the system tray icon. This function only applies to the beta version.

    Short of getting repetative strain injury from constant clicking, the only way out is to disable RD before installing trusted software, or if you forget, then just click to accept everything and sort your application rules out afterwards.

    Thank you for your replies TopperID, and particularly WSFuser for the last link that clearly explained everything.
