I just now found out that a year back Bellgamin asked whether TrustNoExe created hashes for the names of its allowed/denied folders and programs. The answer is no. The manual shows where they are stored in the registry and they are there in plain. TrustNoExe is hardly anti-malware. Its intended use is to control introduced unauthorised software in a shared network environment. I manage the computers in a school (a thankless task) where I use TNE to prevent little (and big) boys from running games that they bring into the school on their USB drives. My teachers should be grateful. THE is very powerful (and free, which is important in a school), although it is ineffective against SWF files and some script languages (eg .JS files).
