Here's what's new in version 184.108.40.206 (07/02/2004) (MD5: D4DE78311D6059D702ABB8A227A57042):
o Added a check that you have privileges to read and write to the Registry keys pertinent to BHOs. This generally requires administrator privileges.
o Fixed a bug that caused Windows NT4 users to get an error message about 'GetLongPathName' when trying to start BHODemon.
o The 'Tip of the Day' dialog box has a checkbox that allows you to enable or disable it at program startup. Previously, it was a 'push-like' button, which was confusing - it has been changed to be a standard checkbox.
o In the 'Details' dialog box, the BHO attribute named 'Enabled' has been changed slightly to 'Enabled?', to help prevent confusion. Also, if a BHO's file cannot be found on the disk, but it still has entries in the Registry, the 'Enabled?' attribute now says 'No - file is missing', instead of just 'No'.
o The MD5 value for the 'BHODemon20Steup.exe' file is now displayed in the http://www.definitiv...ODemon2PUD.html file. This MD5 value can be used to verify that the file you downloaded has not been tampered with by a malicious third-party.
o A bug in the 'Settings' dialog box that, for non-US users, incorrectly calcuated the amount of time since your last successful 'Check for Updates' has been fixed.
o Added a button to the 'Settings' dialog box for donations via PayPal. Send us your money!
o Added a disclaimer to the installation kit to the effect that BHODemon is not going to do anything evil to your PC.
o Added verbage to the mesage box that pops when you attempt to exit BHODemon that it's probably a better idea to leave it running.
o If BHODemon fails to connect to the internet, the message box that pops now lists some likely causes.
o Added some verbage to the Help File to reinforce the idea that a BHO can do anything to your PC that any other Windows program can do - it's not limited just to the browser.

A free people ought not only to be armed and disciplined, but they should have sufficient arms and ammunition to maintain a status of independence from any who might attempt to abuse them, which would include their own government."
