It self-replaces (updates) wherever its placed :)
Integrated unzip utility makes this a very simple process :)

RejZor, is it possible to:

1) Configure the behavior of the windows of your program?
     I mean, if you want that the program shut down after the action or not...
     Ask or not for confirmations...

2) Have a parametric command line, each function with a parameter?

It will be very useful as you can imagine  ;)

RejZor, can you say something?
(Mac, I'm not in a hurry, just to know from the father of the baby  ;D)

Sorry,but i cannot impliment function to go back to program after some function is executed. On some function screens you are allowed to go back if you want to change something,but after you have given some action for avast!,this utility will exit.
Its due to somehow limited arhitecture,because its not written in any known programming language,but its a bit improvised ;)

Added a minor startup check&termination for rogue processes.
The termination engine is the same as in Rogue Process Xterminator tool.

You can download version 1.1.050 from my page (make sure you refresh it ;) ) or via integrated update feature.

So is it necessary to have the rouge process tool if we have this version of AEC?

Can't be. Version 1.1.050 was out today !? I test every release for this update feature and it was working every time. Made some extra fixes in later versions,but nothing big.
Try deleting this folder:
C:\WINDOWS\AECU

This is a temp folder for update process. Maybe something went wrong and the update check file remains there. But its overwritten each time so i don't think this is the problem ???

Yeah, strange, but that works  ::)
Now I have the last version.

Ok good :) I think from this version on it should be no problem since the update folder is entirely erased. So no old files remains there ;)
