    The title says it all... will all the new features of the coming v3.5/4.0 work with a LUA? Does Prevx overall work perfectly with a LUA?

    Yes, as long as you've installed with administrative rights, you can then use LUA with everything 3.0-4.0.

    Thank you, Joe. :) I suppose the "Run/Start as"-command is good enough? :doubt:

    One Question: What is LUA?
    Or what?

    LUA means "Limited User Account", and security against malware for example is increased vastly by running under one.

    =) Ok. I mostly call this UAC. (Vista)

    Or on XP our German expression for LUA so i didn't know what it is... ;)

    Thx.

    I think UAC is just annoying and easier to bypass. I personally don't consider UAC as full-fledged.

    I agree :D And from a technical perspective, UAC is just a warning to the user - LUA is a fundamental split in the available functionality to programs (and is significantly more secure).
