Changed Updater now version V1.19.0
Now will update to New named "yazak.exe" or still use old name "IEXPLORE.EXE" if you have yazak named that.

I Have changed the Yazak EXE name to stop problems with yazak as windows thinks its IE
The two following problems will not happen with new named yazak exe.
"Click to Activate" - When Audibles are used in Pm's ....slows pm's down a little when alot of Audibles are used and not clicked
"Do you want to allow this webpage to access your Clipbaord"....Copy and paste annoyance ...can be fix by changing setting in IE

The advantage of having Yazak exe named "IEXPLORE.EXE" seems to not work now so decided now to rename to "yazak.exe"
this use to make your voice stronger...as it dont seem to make any difference now...
You can still have the old name if you wish and the updater will use it if you have it named as old name "IEXPLORE.EXE"

New Yazak installs will use the new "yazak.exe" name. ....
If have old named yazak and you wish to use this new name re-install Yazak... (or rename it to "yazak.exe" and change shortcut)
