    I looked around and I know that services.exe is not to be allowed to install driver/services, but what about Athurize to terminate? Also svchost be defualt I guess is allowed to terminate, is that right as well? Same goes to sms.exe? Sorry for the questions, I hadn't used ProcessGuard for a while, getting acustomed to it again.

    What about Rasauto.exe ? i've been seeing this one lately and have no idea what it is. I've set it to "Deny Always" and have noticed no ill effects.

    i only have winlogon.exe and csrss.exe authorized to terminate, except for another third-party program that, unfortunately, requires it..

    i am not sure what the default settings are for other things like svchost.exe and smss.exe..

    there might be some other processes that need authorization to terminate protected processes, like, for example, if IE or "explorer.exe" was "crashing", and something like "drwatson" tried to close them.. if PG alerted me that drwatson tried to close IE, then i would "allow" it to "terminate"..
