    Hi, my questions this evening are about Shadow user. When adding folders to the exclustion list which path is correct:

    c:\Document and settings\user\application data\ - each program
    c:\program files\ - each program

    The targeted programs are Nod32, BOclean, Windows Defender, Opera mail and bookmarks, Look n stop, MCE download for epg data. I think these programs cover everything that download on a daily basis and are critical to every day usage. If anyone has any other areas that are important to stable pc environment please let me know.

    I am also changing the time when windows looks for updates from everday to once a week. Should this be extended further in time?

    I look forward to any help, as I am just beginning to trial this software and want to ensure the correct settings right from jump. This is my home and only pc with no other backup.

    Hi, Ptah

    I only use the auto commit and that on my thunderbird mail folder, which to setup I unhid the all hiddeh file and folders then browse to it [the mail folder] and select it, then rehid them.

    That way you have the full path.

    As for updates, I deactivate do the updates reboot, do any scans just in case some thing might have managed to get in nothing ever has, [and have tested at some bad bandit sites :eek: ] then I Reactivate.

    Take Care,
    TheQuest :cool:
