    Not a decent GUI, no GUI. And I wouldn't hold out hope

    If there ever is a turn of events it would be a decent one certainly.

    So much for empty babble over expectations of it from me, but do you still use FIDES and which combo, (MemProtect I use) is an ideal addition to round out granular security control from your standpoint.

    Really doesn't impact system energy any longer going back to the Layered Approach given much better suited coding and hardware these days.

    Because the current version is expired, the developer uploaded a new version today.

    Only users of the demo version. It has several "limitations" and this is one of them.

    Did refresh FIDES files. I'm back in the game again. :)

    How do you enable balloons?
    Or is this only for the beta version?
    I am currently using FIDES stable demo.

    A beta-version is not needed. Launch Tray.exe with the additional parameter -showballoon ("Tray.exe -showballoon") and a balloon/notification will appear on the desktop (and it will be mentioned in the Notification Center)

    Got it. I made a bat file so it can run that way at startup.

    @shmu26 For reference, if there is ever a time when you want to silence any alerts (no balloons or toasts), there is also a parameter "nopopups" which alternatively you would place where "showballoon" was placed.

    If an item is under [BLACKLISTREAD] does that automatically stop it from modifying, or does it also need to be put under [BLACKLISTMODIFY] ?

    It depends on the rule.

    Code:
    [BLACKLISTREAD]
    *>C:\Protected\*
    
    = Applications can't read files in this directory, but they are able to "see" them and are even able to delete them.
    If you have such rules they should be put in both categories [BLACKLISTREAD] + [BLACKLISTMODIFY]
    Code:
    [BLACKLISTREAD]
    *>C:\Protected*
    
    = If it is written like this, files (and the directory) are now protected and placing the rule in [BLACKLISTREAD] should be enough. But it shouldn't harm to place it in both :cautious:

    Thanks, @mood. That's an interesting difference between rules.
