Hi

I have often discovered stuff in my

downloaded program files folder that

should not be there ......

I use windows xp home edition.

Is there a way I can block folders in general ?

Been trying to find the security tab that existed

in windows 2000 but could not ....


Can I get a software that monitors my pc and lets

me know when somebody is trying to

put something in my downloaded program files

folder that I do not want ....... ?

Online and instant monitoring and not like a

"scan after it has hapened" software like

spybot .......




Best Regards

iceb

Spybot has a realtime download blocker, and also a realtime registry monitor (tea timer).

Click Immunize and install.

Mikey has a useful page about it: What the Heck is Teatimer?

It is part of Spybot SD 1.3 and comes with the help update. Be sure to download all updates (other than optional extra languages and skins).
Enable it by click Tools, then check Resident.

Thread about it at the Spybot SD forum: http://forums.net-in...topic=16021&hl=

Spybot 1.3 download (if you still have 1.2): http://www.safer-net...rors/index.html
