Question about application being replaced

  1. A while ago I was using Kerio Personal Firewall. It had an application behavior control feature that alerted me when one application tried to launch another. Sometimes it alerted me that one application was replacing another (e.g. when reinstalling a program) how does it know when an application is being replaced?

    simple - - it looks to see if that file already exists in the targeted location and if so,
    it Pops you a warning and asks permission. fundamental approach to controlling installs.

    ps: comodo and subbelt person firewalls both have this feature :)
