.exe keeps getting bigger after each compile

In my project, every time I make a very small adjustment the resulting .exe file gets larger.  For example, my last executable was 24.6 MB   Now the new one is over 25MB after hardly any changed to the code.

What exactly causes this?

That explains the size difference and so I assume the increase you are seeing is normal. Make sure you don't have any unused controls in Project|Components because while that won'y make the project grow, it will make it bigger than needed. If you want to upload your project I'll take a look at it.

If you recompile without any changes does the size change?

BTW when I compile the project that I used for the last question of yours that I worked on it's only 64KB.

I just tested it out and the size stays the same.   Maybe it is naturally getting bigger and its just surprising me...

25MB surprises me. Have you added other things besides the blocked sites list and the allowed maintenance?

Oh no.  This is a different project I'm talking about.
