    What's the difference between "Ask User/Block" and "Ask User/Allow"? No matter which I choose, it's the same, just asking me to allow or block the action.

    Just to clarify, occassionally it is impossible to ask the user what they want to do. The system could have certain user interface threads paused, or it could be in the middle of some other task which cannot be blocked by user activity. With the newer AppDefend this matters more since it works from boot and not all of those early activities can be alerted upon since the display hasn't been initialized yet.
