I’ve set _these_ to DENY for all users, but haven’t restarted yet so not sure what will happen. Also not sure what would happen if a schedule trigger was set as admin to delete these files at shutdown if they exist…

Of course, the more sensible thing to do is have a limited account for your day to day use (see above) but, what the heck, it’s even more safe to have a Linux distribution as OS. Plus I like fiddling around on a regular basis, and I haven’t had an infection for at least a year. Of course, having a firewall/HIPS, Malware remover and script blocker for your browser helps… I use Comodo, Spybot S&D, and Mozilla firefox + NoScript, respectively.
Freeware is democracy in code…. Power to the Masses!

Could be wrong but i also thought notifier doubled as the further info provider on found viruses ??
