CIS Defense+ prevents programs to start with alternative shell


I have used CIS since version 3, and now that it is upgraded to 5, it doesn’t let programs start with the alternative shell I use, emergeDesktop.

Programs do start when CIS Defense+ Security Level is set at Disabled. Also, they start when using Explorer shell with Defense+ Security Level set at Safe Mode.

Originally all the applets that emergeDesktop consist of were listed in Defense+ applications running in sandbox, but after I added them in Trusted Files, they were no longer listed in sandbox. I see them listed now in Trusted Files. But still programs won’t start.

I have XP SP3.

I’d like to use all features of CIS, including Defense+, thanks for your help.

Does App. is not working correctly, but does not seem to be s/boxed. What to do? [v5] help you any further?
