Over time entries for trusted files within Defense+ and the Network Security Policy accumulate. The list grows ever longer with installations of new programs, Windows updates, software releases and so on. However, when programs are uninstalled or temporary files from zip deflations are deleted, the entries for those files still remain within the list of trusted files. Presumably, this has an impact upon the performance of CIS and the size of the registry.
Although CIS has a purge facility, there is a clear opportunity to automatically initiate a purge job to clear the dead entries. Such a purge job could be set up ad scheduled in the same as virus scans are.
