    Hi all,

    New here...GREAT FORUM!!!

    this is what I did, i put in the warmguard block list the program setup.exe.
    when running it indeed it was blocked.
    BUT, when running an autorun script that runs the setup.exe, it didnt, the app just run.

    any ideas, my guess would be that I'm doing something wrong...since its so trivial.

    d.

    hmm, Wormguard has been designed in the first place to block scripts, not exe's...

    I suppose the file was not malicious enough to give WormGuard any reason to stop it?
    Don't put your *.exe in the always block list om the left, or you'll have great trouble to run your windows and everything. :D

    It would seem that WormGuard should be able to detect a script that is about the execute an .exe since this could be potentially dangerous.

    That wouldn't be practical. Since one of the major uses of scripts is to automate the running of programs.

    Thank god I have SSM as a backup.

    this can't be, really, aren't 95% of the CDs have autorun scripts?

    I would guess that the FIRST thing to handle are autorun scripts, I must be doing something wrong....did anyone made this test as wello_Oo_O?

    And if I am right.....man what a bad buy....
