Winpatrol Plus


Recommended Posts

Recently I received WinPatrol Plus as gift & I installed it in one of the home system. (it already has avira a/v paid, Mbam free & ad-muncher paid). OS=XP Home SP 3.

I know it is a security soft. I went to the homepage, to know about what it does, but I am not clear. (Cnet too)

There are lot of tabs in the interface with explanations when clicked.

The puppy icon in the tray barks occasionaly. This is what I know.

Can somebody who is using WinPatrol Plus tell me what it actually does & how it protects the system.

I use WinPatrol PLUS that gives access to Premium Access to PLUS Knowledgebase:


For example go to Active Tasks and choose one then click on Info... then click on PLUS Info...

I'm not a Winpatrol Plus user, but I do use Winpatrol on all of my machines. Winpatrol is a great little program. It's light and very effective. Sometimes a little slow to detect things but not excruciatingly slow. It actively protects the HOSTS file & any additions or changes to your services, amongst providing you with information about your computer such as scheduled tasks, running processes, services, start up & delay start-up programs, activex items, and many more. You can't go wrong by using Winpatrol :)

I agree with swagger and I have been using WinPatrol since it became available and I even have a wristband that I take with me when I am helping people with their systems:


I keep WinPatrolToGo on it plus CCleaner:


I have to update the copy of MBAM installer on it I see.

It sure beats carrying a CD and the days of SneakerNet (that's floppy diskettes):


I also read Bits from Bill regularly:
