Could we please stop using "Zero Day"? It's silly. Doesn't fit
You sir, are an idiot.
Long time ago, I realized I can NOT trust ANY application that asks for root/admin access to my system. My solution was to virtualize the crap into its own virtual machine.
RAM is cheap these days, I have 12GB... Perhaps you could do the same. When you want to use that specific application, you just unpause the virtual machine.
I have actually done the same thing with "Internet". "ALL" my "Internet" is inside a virtual machine and my main PC has no Internet access at all.
Just a suggestion.
*lol* so true! Couldn't have said it better myself.
Hey you only ever told me the score you got while you were bored and distracted.
