It does take a lot of memory... I would obviously close it after playing warcraft
Die Datei ist nur zur Verwaltung von sogenannten Bans von dem Spiel "Warcraft 3" / "Warcraft 3: The Frozen Throne" zuständig. Diese Bans werden vom User selber verwaltet und dienen nur zu seiner eigenen Information. Das Problem des Aufzeichnens hat wahrscheinlich mit dem DirectX Hook zu tun, den WC3Banlist.exe für eine Bildschirmausgabe erstellt.

WC3Banlist ist zu 100% schadlos!!! Es ist eine erweiterung für das Computerspiel Warcraft III, welche eine gewisse kontrolle über sogenannte Custom Games, spiele die von einem Spieler gestartet werden und in die andere Spieler sich einklinken können. Zum beispiel kann man damit herausfinden in welchem Lad sich die Spieler gegenwärtig befinden (um zu wissen, ob ich zum Beispiel mit einem Mitspieler Englisch sprechen muss, oder ob dieser Deutsch versteht. Auserdem kann man Spieler bannen. D.h. ein von mir gebannter Spieler kann nicht mehr an Spielen teilnemen, die Ich erstellt habe.
