    Been checking out Mamutu and during an SAS update SAS was flagged. Seems too late in the Mantu game for that.....anyone ?

    Flagged? Or did it just give a popup for a suspicious behavior?

    Suspicious behavior. OK, seems like this would be expected due to the way Mamutu works. So I have to build my own whitelist from scratch....right ?

    Not really. Mamutu has its own whitelist but it can't keep up with everything.

    I'm not sure if they ever fixed this but it used to be that if a process was whitelisted by Mamutu it would no longer have any of the applied restrictions. That's why I dropped it.

    Not sure this is related but I had problems with last night's update too. Mamutu always has to be restarted after every update I get, which is becoming a PITA. But anyway, after last night's update and "needs restarted" notice I clicked Mamutu to restart and Mamutu froze and eventually crashed. Actually after Mamutu was not responding I got my Windows notice that had the options to either wait or kill Mamutu. I chose kill and Mamutu closed and I had to restart it manually.

    Possibly related to a similar experience I had yesterday. To much of a PITA for me.
    Thanks

    So are you going to try a different behavior blocker? If so, which one?

    I have used Mamutu for quite a while(though not using it now) and it only needed to restart occasionally if there was a program or framework update, but usually it was just an update for the whitelist. A few times I did have problems with a program update failing every time, so it could be that Mamutu downloads an program update, restarts, fails and then does so again each update.
