WinPatrol will alert you to Spyware, Adware and nasty programs that may infiltrate your computer without your knowledge. WinPatrol enables users to clean up your Taskbar, ActiveX, Browser and Startup programs. Besides, WinPatrol monitors and exposes adware, keyloggers, spyware, worms, cookies, and other malicious software. This program puts you back in control of your computer with no need for constant updates. 

WinPatrol is well-designed to help you better understand what programs are running on your computer and to alert you to any new programs added without your permission. The program scans your system, using heuristics, for evidences of hijackings, malware attacks and critical changes made to your computer without permission.
Version 28.9.2013

Microsoft has made great advancements in security yet machines continue to fall victim to attacks, suffer from poor user choices and receive unwanted programs included with legitimate software. WinPatrol considers security essential but also provides the knowledge needed to configure systems to run at optimal performance. Features are designed for both experts and users with little understanding of computers.

Disable Bug Fix 28.8.
As sometimes happens when you add one feature you break another. For anyone who installed WinPatrol 28.8 on a non Windows 8 system the "Disabled" status of startup programs is now being displayed propertly. This version 28.9 will fix that problem.

Update Notification.
Ironically one of our new fixes relates to text on our PLUS screen that lets you know when a new version is available. By popular demand WinPatrol will now send a message letting you know when a new build is available. When this notification is displayed we also change the text on the PLUS screen to remind you. Unfortunately, the text didn't always reset after you upgraded to the new version. This version will resolve that issue.

Windows 8 Task Manager.
Instead of using MSConfig, Windows 8 includes a list of Startup programs as a tab in the new Task Manager. Users can disable startup programs using the Windows Task Manager. While WinPatrol's "Disable" feature includes additional features it now recognizes choices made by the Task Manager and will alert Task Manager when files are disabled by WinPatrol. As in the past WinPatrol will monitor programs which are disabled so if they are forced back to normal by a partner program, WinPatrol will automatically reset them to disabled unless you click to Enable the program.
(Windows 8 Only)

Installation Program Update.
The WinPatrol setup program will no longer launch regedit as part of the install process. In the past, regedit was used to set some useful examples on how to use the feature that allows WinPatrol to monitor any registry location. Launching regedit was not acceptable to some secure systems and with so many different versions of Windows not all of our examples were useful on all platforms. A help file is still easily accessible on the Registry Monitoring tab.
(All Users during setup. PLUS required for custom registry monitoring.)

Windows XP Enhancement..
As part of our dedication to XP users we've improved performance that can sometimes be affected by large Temp Internet Folders or hard drives with little space. Even if you don't use Internet Explorer unrelated quirks can sometimes occur when the temp file grows too large. For more information on healthy temp files reading Free #1 Tweak to Improve Windows Performance While for safety we recommend XP users upgrade to Windows 8 before the end of support from Microsoft next April, WinPatrol will continue to detect changes including zero-day infiltrations on Windows XP systems.
(Windows XP SP2 & SP3 and Windows Vista users.)
