    Hi jmonge,

    I'm afraid that I am not understanding your question, sorry.
    English is not my native language, neither is it the native language of the developer.
    What exactly are you asking?

    Actually I wanted you to be more specific about your question, where, when, etc. RegRun is a "complicated" tool with lots of parts.
    Anyhow, well, yes, it gives you the ability to check a file in VirusTotal.

    I'll give one example on XP-home SP3 (Dutch) about a file from IEClean (from formerly PSC; Kevin and Nancy).

    In RegRun I go to Start Control, Startup Group.
    I see ietsr.exe mentioned.

    At the right side I click on "Good or Bad?"
    If I am connected to the internet, the file will be checked at VirusTotal.
    I'll get a screen telling me something, depending on the results.

    RegRun_2010_04_01_2.gif

    I want to know why it could be bad, so I click on it.
    I get:

    RegRun_2010_04_01_3.gif

    Hmm, I know for sure that it is good. Maybe it wasn't previous checked at VirusTotal. Let's let RegRun check it again. It does it again at VirusTotal.
    I get:

    RegRun_2010_04_01_4.gif

    I click on "Detailed View".

    RegRun_2010_04_01_5.gif

    Well, actually the file wasn't known in the RegRun Application Database.
    Can I do something about that? Yes, I can.

    I can click on "Add to Application Database".

    RegRun_2010_04_01_6.gif

    After I have done that, and checking it again, I get:

    RegRun_2010_04_01_7.gif

    So, as I already knew about this particular file that it is safe, RegRun is now telling that too (well, I told it to do so!).

    Even better is to submit that file to Greatis so they can add it generally into the RegRun Application Database.

    =====

    Well, that's it.
    It's just only one small example.

    You're welcome, jmonge.
    I hope that it answered your question.
    It was just only a very small example.

    (PS: please do keep in mind that no anti-x is perfect!)
