New Program Type?

What is the difference, for say, a keyboard macro program, whether I set it as “Trusted” or set it as a “Windows Application”?

Chuck Billow

Windows Application is allowed to start other executables without alerting where with Trusted you will get alerted. I recommend to be very very careful when giving a program Windows Application credentials as you give a blank cheque.

Got it. “WindowsApp” isn’t always a choice…what causes that?


Alerts for rundll32.exe and services.exe may be the programs that don’t give these alerts. These system files are treated different.
