    Hello there,
    I want to apply 'Secure Message Handling' to TrojanHunter Guard but every time I reboot after doing so, THGuard disappears from the system tray(and Task Manager). Does anyone know how I can get around this?
    Thanks, M.B.

    Hi MikeyBikey, Does TH's Guard have it's own GUI? If not then Secure Message Handling is pointless.

    From the Help file:
    Due to the structure of the Windows operating system, it is possible for applications to control other applications using windows messages. There are many messages which mean a lot of different things, but a few of them allow an application to close another application. This is unwanted in most cases because you only want to close an application when YOU are ready, not when some other program on your system wants to. A message is generated for instance when you press the X button on a window. All a malicious program needs to do is mimic this message and Windows thinks you actually pressed the X button yourself.

    Thanks for your reply Pilli. No, TH Guard can't be disabled by an GUI x button.(Guess I should've read the helpfile more closely).Thanks again. M.B.
