Regarding Deskard Scanner, I had two problems happen when I ran the file. First, my system clock didn't reappear for quite some time and when it did it was set to military time with no A.M. or P.M., etc. Not really a big deal except my registry scanner now thinks I havent run it in 65 days(lol). The other problem tho I have not resolved. The scanner moved four of my downloaded program files to a backup folder. I tried to copy the folders back to Windows and I cannot copy or move them. Anyone know how I can restore them? I use and need these particular files and windows is reporting the associated programs as damaged. I guess if I have to I can redownload and reinstall, but it would be easier to find a way to restore the files from Deskard's folder. Suggestions?

Is there no update?

Since it's made using AutoIt3, can't someone just get the au3 file, and release it as open source?

If the author could kindly contact me, that'd be useful.

Thanks.

I agree this newer version is buggy, but I still had a copy of DSS from 2010 and have used it on about 800 machines so far this year, flawlessly. If you can find an older version on the web or at webarchive, get it. Works just fine.
