I hope this is the correct place to post problems/bugs. There is a problem with filenames and directory paths being converted to their short forms. When a filename (i.e. "bestcrypt.exe") is processed, depending on where/how it is called, the name registered by AppDepfend is either "bestcrypt.exe" (long name) or "bestcr~1.exe" (short name) for example. This results in two entries in the permissions table each possibly with different permissions. The same problem occurs when the folder (full file path) is stored as a short or long name (i.e. "bcresident.exe" in folder "c:\program files\jetico\bestcrypt\" (long name) or "bcresident.exe" in folder "c:\progra~1\jetico\bestcr~1\" (short name). This above can result in up to 4 entries in the permissions table for the same EXE. I believe the problem mostly arises when one process starts another process and in many cases the called process will have a shortened full path and shortened full name, but it can be a mixture of the two. P.S. AppDefend and RegDefend are fantastic products! I was starting to wonder when someone would created such software when all other security "suites" seem to fail in defense against "unknown" security threats.
