2020

Please note:  Systemus will set off your anti-virus.  I swear it’s not a Trojan – but, well, there you are.  If I ever figure out why it gets flagged as a virus, maybe I’ll be able to do something about it.  Or, maybe, if enough people use this, then maybe it will get re-classified as safe.

  • New: Custom Tokens

Notice: Version 1.2 had a function which gave the user the ability to clear the memory cache.  I have removed this because it was setting off Antivirus as being a Trojan.  Sorry to disappoint on that score!

There are still some issues with the RUN box, and still no documentation on how to use it properly. I have to work on this part.
