WinPatrol provides powerful innovative functionality of two programs. As a malware monitor WinPatrol will alert you to any hijacking and critical changes made to your computer without your permission. As an all purpose utility WinPatrol allows you to explore deep into your system and helps you understand what programs are installed and why.

Our Startup Manager allows you to optimize your boot up process helping to disable those un-needed programs which just slow you down. Our IE Plugin Manager keeps your browser free of unwanted toolbars and plugins. Add to that control of your Scheduled Tasks, Cookies, Services, HOST File, File Type Associations and you'll never want to be without Scotty the Windows WatchDog.

WinPatrol Released
WinPatrol makes it quicker and easier to detect the good guys from the bad guys!
  • Company names are now displayed on every list.
  • Full Report has been improved and provides full information available for Services.
  • Window management improved so WinPatrol alerts no longer block web sites.
We've also closed another common backdoor for Spyware by montioring the registry key commonly known as AppInit_DLLs (O20).
WinPatrol PLUS now monitors a number of non-tradition Startup locations found in the registry including
  • HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\ShellServiceObjectDelayLoad (O21) Used by CDBurn, PostBootReminder, SysTray, WebCheck
  • HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\SharedTaskScheduler (O22) Examples:Browser preloader:UI Library, Component Categories cache daemon
  • HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\ShellExecuteHooks Examples:Browser preloader:Shell, Microsoft AntiSpyware Service Hook
