Why can't I use RegEdit to change the Abtrusion Protector settings?

 

I would like to move the Abtrusion Protector files to another folder.

 

What if I am already hacked? What if I am already infected by a virus?

 

 
 
 
 

Why can't I use RegEdit to change the Abtrusion Protector settings?

Most of the Abtrusion Protector settings are stored in sub-keys to the registry key:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services

These sub-keys are protected by Abtrusion Protector so that they cannot be modified by any applications except for Abtrusion Protector itself.

The reason for this is that we want to make sure that an intruder will not be able to disable Abtrusion Protector just by modifying registry values.

It is possible to turn off registry protection in the Advanced Settings dialog. To open the Advanced Settings dialog, click on the Abtrusion Protector icon in the system tray with your right mouse button and select Settings in the menu that appears. Click the Advanced button in the Settings dialog.
