    Hi,

    I have a quick question on the protection and security settings in PG (I have the full version on a XP Home PC). I have read the help files etc... but still a little confused on these 2.

    First off is everything in one in the other? And just what exactly does it mean when something is in either one (such as excel.exe or nod32.exe). For instance with excel.exe in the Protection tab, what is it being protected from? And the same question for the Security tab. I am just trying to figure out what to have (or allow) in each one or what should be in them for security reasons.

    Thanks
    Logan

    Everything listed on the Protections tab should be listed on the Security tab, but not the other way round.

    The security tab comes into play when you run a program for the first time, you will see an alert about xyz.exe wanting to start. On this alert you are given the option of Allow/Block and a check box that tells PG to Remember your action and do this every time.

    If a program needs special permissions for things that are Globally Blocked (the Main tab of PG), you are able to allow them for that program on the Protections tab.

    I would suggest taking the time and read the help file for PG, it does a very good job of explaining what each protection item is about. Also the default settings work very well, and suffice until you become more comfortable with PG and its capabilities.
