    Here is the download site. Seems like a lot of changes:

    Here's what's new in version 2.0.0.19 (09/02/2004) (MD5: C6B6BB9B4D823F88F96CF92CD759CFA4):

    o Many changes were made to support Windows XP Service Pack 2 (SP2 ).

    - Although Internet Explorer now has a feature that allows you to disable BHOs, we recommend that you do not use it. Malicious BHOs can very easily circumvent this new feature and re-enable themselves. When you disable BHOs using BHODemon, however, it is done in such a way that BHOs cannot circumvent it.

    - If you decide to use Internet Explorer's new feature anyway, BHODemon integrates with it fully: when you enable or disable a BHO in Internet Explorer, BHODemon immediately reflects the BHOs new state.

    - In the 'Details' dialog for each BHO, three new pieces of information are displayed:

    Load Attempts - How many times this BHO has attempted to load
    Blocked Load Attempts - How many times this BHO has not loaded
    Last Load Time - The last date/time this BHO attempted to load (successfully or not)

    o Some Windows 98 users were unable to 'hook the Registry' when starting BHODemon.

    o To allow multiple users to run BHODemon from a network share, the logfile name now contains the user's machine name.

    o The 'Settings' dialog has a new button called 'BHO List Statistics'. This display interesting information gleaned from the BHO List:

    Total number of user reports - How many BHOs have been reported by all users
    Total number of unique BHOs reported - How many unique BHOs have been reported
    Top 10 BHOs - The ten most popular BHOs worldwide (both malware and benign)

    o System information is now written to the logfile at the first start-up, to help us diagnose problems with BHODemon. No information that can uniquely identify your computer is written; the logfile can be viewed with any text editor, such as Notepad or Word.

    o The name of the BHODemon BHO list was changed to force users to upgrade to version 2.0.0.19 or later. We had to do this, because (a) the BHO List has grown exponentially in size, and (b) there were so many users of older versions of BHODemon that we could no longer afford the bandwidth they were downloading! To address this problem, version 2.0.0.18 and later only downloads the BHO List file when it actually needs to, instead of every time you click the 'Check for Updates' button.

    o Once you've done a 'Check for Updates' and discovered there's a new version of BHODemon available, a message appears every time you run the program to remind you to upgrade it.

    o Anyone using a really old verion of BHODemon (2.0.0.14 or earlier) will now see a message to please upgrade to the latest version of BHODemon in the 'Description' column of the main screen.


    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    We strongly recommend that you install this new version into the same folder as your old version. Also, be sure to shutdown BHODemon before starting the installation! To see changes from previous versions, look in the "What's New" file in the install directory.
