As a MULTI PURPOSE SUPPORT UTILITY WinPatrol replaces multiple system utilities with its enhanced functionality. WinPatrol PLUS provides easy to understand descriptions of over 16,000 programs. 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, patent pending R.I.D. technology.
Enhanced Keylogger Detection
The use of keyloggers for illegal purposes has exploded. A Schenectady man
was recently jailed for up to three years for felony eavesdropping after
putting a keylogger on his wife's computer. I've heard too many stories of
abuse made possible due to keyloggers so it's time for it to stop. While
WinPatrol PLUS had always detected keyloggers we've enhanced this feature
and it's now available to free users so everyone is protected.
Interactive PLUS code Activation
Unfortunately the number of users depending on illegal PLUS codes has
become a problem. While honored by the worldwide popularity of WinPatrol
this could slow down access to PLUS information by our paid supporters.
Our new version will do more to screen out invalid codes. In a few cases,
users may find their valid codes are no longer working correctly. Those
affected can write to support @ WinPatrol.com and we'll make sure they
receive the correct code.
Optimized Detection of New Services
As more and more programs move to the Windows Service model it become
apparent that this may be a popular avenue of attack in the future. The
routine used to monitor and detect new Window Services has been optimized
to make this process transparent.
Decrease CPU Usage and Conflicts
Conflicts with some other registry intense programs may have resulted in
abnormally high CPU usage on past versions. WinPatrol 14 includes some
intelligent routines to allow complete protection without fighting over
resources with other security suites and system level programs.
Default -expressboot option
WinPatrol now includes a -expressboot option which will be used when
machines boot up for the first time. This new feature optimizes boot time
and allows other applications to maximize their initialization routines.
Regular Registry Cleanup
Some registry cleaners have complained that we don't clean up some data
stored in the registry quickly enough. This version will remove
information that is no longer needed and "First Detected"
information on a regular basic when the file no longer exists.
Multiple copies of WinPatrol in startup
Occasionally, users have written to let us know they have multiple copies
of Scotty in the list of Startup programs. This version can correct any
errors by checking the "Automatically run WinPatrol" box under
the Options tab.
