Explorer.exe

Recommended Posts

Running latest stable release EIS on Window 7 Pro SP1. Why does it create a custom rule for Explorer.exe. Since this is part of windows shouldn't it be all allowed.

 

EDIT: Manually changed status to "all allowed" and custom rule is now gone.

If a custom rule for explorer.exe was created, then the file was not recognized as being part of Windows. This is usually the case when the file was patched or changed. There are many legitimate reasons why this can happen. A lot of UI skinning and customization tools will patch Windows executables to make certain visual alterations. It could also be that your explorer.exe was infected by a virus in the past and the tool you used to clean the infection was unable to restore the file properly. If it doesn't show up as infected, I wouldn't worry too much about it though.
