    By default, when exiting ewido 4.0 using the tray icon (unfortunately, that's the only way to exit ewido), one is prompted to confirm the exit. The dialog has a check box that can be selected to disable this exit warning.

    How can the exit warning be re-enabled, after that check box has been selected?

    Let me guess... The setting is encrypted under HKLM\SOFTWARE\ewido anti-spyware\config, and can't be changed without reverse engineering...

    Exactly :( But why do you want to enable it again?

    Because right now, I'm not using ewido in real-time mode. So, for convenience, I don't want the exit warning (since I will often be exiting ewido). But if I ever begin using ewido in real-time mode again, I would like to have the warning back (since exiting ewido will not be something I'd normally do).

    I write it down on my "wishlist" (what users wishes) but I cannot promise anything.

    It would be easier simply to delete the associated registry key.

    In any case, I now know how to re-enable the exit confirmation, thanks to Bubba. Simply delete the value 22C3034B. **



    ** Always backup your registry before making manual changes to it. This information comes without warranty. I may be incorrect, or even totally nuts. Do no try this at home. Supervise your children at all times. Do not use before operating heavy machinery or installing Windows. Buzzed driving is drunk driving. No exchanges, returns, or replacements.
