Registry changes


Recommended Posts

Paint.NET uses the registry to store the MRU list and thumbnails (ie, File > Open Recent) as well as remembering things like window positions and tool settings.

These are things the registry is there for, and are not a cause for concern.

Thanks for the feedback. I don't remember getting firewall alerts from using PDN.

Rick,

Yea, I thought it was a bit unusual. I had been using PDN with no problem, after about 45 minutes I started getting

Comodo messages.

I will do a Malwarebytes scan later today.

Thanks for the input.

Making changes to the registry is hardly a cause for alarm. Your firewall seems to be a bit over zealous.
