    Hmm. I don't turn application lockdown off for any process especially my zip programs. That feature is great protection. With it I don't need to be concern if one of my people need to open a zip file that is suppose to be jpg files. If they are jpg's they are fine. But if they are executables in disguise then HMPA shuts them down. I love it.

    Already got the answer via support. Added uTorrent in their too, got a BSOD, removed it, now everything is fine.:cautious::sneaky::)

    EDIT: Currently manually added protected apps are MPC-HC, Notepad++, Thunderbird, Outlook & WinRAR. Disabled protections for firefox & also disabled the Keystroke Encryption as they were conflicting with Kaspersky Secure Keyboard.

    Outlook should have been added as part of MS OFFICE with the office Template. I did nothing to add them, HMPA added them.

    I never saw Outlook added automatically.

    Outlook is not auto-added; only the commonly exploited programs Excel, Powerpoint and Word are auto-added. That's on the most recent beta. Before that I cannot remember as it is too far back in time.

    Hello,
    Just looking, and Outlook 2015 is not added on my HMPA 3.6.7 build 604 .
    Do you think it's necessary to add it manually for better protection ?

    When I used HMPA, I added Outlook manually, because it is my desktop email client, and it has vulnerabilities that have been exploited in the past.
    But I don't do a whole lot of complicated operations with Outlook. I am guessing that some Outlook functions won't work.
    Try it out, and see if everything works right for you. If not, you can try disabling specific mitigations for Outlook.

    Good point. I could be wrong as it is a long time ago. Also I am on Win 7 with Office 2010

    This was the reply, just ignore the utorrent one as it gave me a BSOD, other than that i am using thunderbird & outlook in office template as suggested. No problems.
    Regards.
