    Processes that are set to ask permission to run show up as processes in task manager even when denied permission by PG free.
    There seems to be an instance running for every time they were denied? I now have 4 instances of cidaemon.exe as a process in task manager .PG has it set to deny always and the PG Alerts window says it was blocked from starting 4 times. Still it is running as as process in task manager with User Name as SYSTEM and memory usage as 56K. I cannot end it with task manager? Is this a PG or task manager problem? I would appreciate any feedback

    I'm not sure about it showing up as blocked in your logs.

    See if cidaemon.exe is present on your protection tab. If it is then it will run even if it is set to be blocked on the security tab. [Sorry, that statement is incorrect, see here: https://www.wilderssecurity.com/showthread.php?t=109674] If it is on the protection tab, then remove it and that should stop it from running.

    Also, if it is on the protection tab, then it is probably protected from termination. You may not have given task manager permission to terminate protected processes (this may explain why you can't terminate it).

    No it is notI

    Jooske "It can't block new or changed programs".

    Not sure what you mean. It usually will prompt me when a program is changed with "this program has changed since you last used it" or similar wording

    Thanks both of you for replies
