    I have just registered WG and notice that when I right click on a file and select the option "Scan with WormGuard" nothing sems to happen. Is this normal, or shoud some dialogue pop up to say something to show the scan has taken place?

    Cheers

    Hi Chris, You will only get an alert if the file is suspicious.
    Here is a simple test - Open notepad and create a simple file with the word test inside it, save the file to your dexktop as wgtest.txt then rename to wgtest.txt.exe. Do your right click scan and you should get an alert window. Say OK to the alert to let WG let go of the hook.

    That works - however even though my version of WG is registered it says "UNLICENSED SOFTWARE - 30 DAY EVALUATION" - any ideas why?

    It's always done that. Everyone's registered copy says it. It's a bug or just the programmer forgot to code in that it change's it once you register. Don't worry though, it's the fully registered version you have. :D

    Hi Chris, Muf is correct :) When you open the main WG GUI you will see the licensed to Information.
