    As for compressed .exe files generally being malware:

    There's this company called Skype. Which was purchased by Microsoft. The Skype.exe file is compressed.

    I wonder why?

    @Halconnen: I noticed that after we taped the show on a friend's machine.  My guess is that they compress the EXE to reduce the size on disk.

    @windev: After looking at a few other computers, some other applications that seem generally benign get marked purple as well. uTorrent is one I remember.

    The nub question is: I have a shortcut in my start up folder using the t and /e options. Is there a way to configure my procexp.exe start up shortcut so that the UAC dialogue doesn't come up.

    I'm running Windows 8. I followed the steps in this video and the previous one to get the symbols to show up, but they're not showing up. I copied and ran the scripts from the previous video. I also changed the paths process explorer as directed in this video. Any idea why I can't get the symbols?
