A one-time investment in WinPatrol PLUS provides a unique experience you wont find in any other software. As a robust SECURITY MONITOR , WinPatrol will alert you to hijackings, malware attacks and critical changes made to your computer without your permission. WinPatrol PLUS includes our unique R.I.D. technology. As a MULTI PURPOSE SUPPORT UTILITY WinPatrol replaces multiple system utilities with its enhanced functionality.
WinPatrol allows you to get a better understanding of what programs are being added to your computer. It monitors important system areas that are commonly altered by many malicious programs. This includes the startup groups (registry and startup folder), cookies and active tasks. You can terminate processes and enable or disable startup programs. The cookie monitoring option allows you to automatically delete cookies based on a keyword found in the cookie name. Additional features include a WHOIS lookup tool and an option to alert you on changes. WinPatrol is easy to understand, yet quiet powerful.
Traditional security programs scan your hard drive searching for previously identified threats. WinPatrol takes snapshot of your critical system resources and alerts you to any changes that may occur without your knowledge. Youll be removing dangerous new programs while others prepare to update their definition/signature data files.
WinPatrol is NOT:
1. Likely to conflict with other security programs you rely on.
2. A huge drain on your system resources or performance.
3. A yearly subscription or program only designed to help if you pay to upgrade.
4. A signature based system that relies on already identified threats.
5. A program that will update itself automatically without your knowledge.
6. Going to connect to the internet unless you explicitly request info.
7. Going to install any addition crap or toolbars on your system.
Supports Window XP, Vista, Windows 7 including x64 support.
Whats NEW with WinPatrol 2012 version 24.0:
Performance Youll Love it
First and foremost Ive been working on making WinPatrol robust and hidden away so under normal circumstances youll never know its running. Based on your feedback, Ive concentrated on making sure WinPatrol works with other security programs. Our research shows that most of you tend to run at least two anti-Virus/Malware programs along with WinPatrol. Many experts will recommend against more than one program but WinPatrol doesnt work like other malware monitors. It runs great along with other programs. Many Anti-Virus companies may disagree and their support reps will recommend you remove WinPatrol. They havent tested with WinPatrol, we have. If a program removes or quarantines WinPatrol just reinstall our setup program. Its still a quick, easy download.
Cookies Filter out Bad Cookies Automatically.
Earlier this year Microsoft updated how they name cookie files. They now use random file names but theyre still just unencrypted text files. You can click here to read why they decided to make this change. Its makes some sense but broke how WinPatrol manages and filters bad cookies. If youve received the update from Microsoft the WinPatrol cookie manager for Internet Explorer will be broken and look like this.
Localization Fix 64 bit versions
Im not a big fan of Windows 64 bit OS and our language service packs broke using Windows 64 bit. Ive fixed this bug and look forward to showing our international friends how much we respect them by releasing new versions of our local versions. Our language packs are created by volunteers and I couldnt think them enough.
