WinPatrol takes snapshot of your critical system resources and alerts you to any changes that may occur without your knowledge. WinPatrol was the pioneer in using a heuristic behavioral approach to detecting attacks and violations of your computing environment. It continues to be one of the most powerful system monitors while staying a single small program. As a robust SECURITY MONITOR , WinPatrol will alert you to hijackings, malware attacks and critical changes made to your computer without your permission. As a MULTI PURPOSE SUPPORT UTILITY WinPatrol replaces multiple system utilities with its enhanced functionality.
Reduced Memory Footp rint
The monitor component of WinPatrol has been optimized and shrunk so WinPatrol.exe is now only 313 KB instead of its previous 336 KB size. You won't find a smaller Windows system monitor as powerful as WinPatrol.
Additional Support for Firefox 3 and Google Chrome
Since Firefox 3 changed from cookie.txt to SQLite database format Scotty hasn't been hungry for Firefox cookies. Support for Firefox 3 has been the single most requested features. Turns out I was able to include support for the SQLite format without increasing the size of WinPatrol.exe. While I was at it I also included support for Google Chrome which also uses SQLite to store their cookies. Note: Firefox cookie can not be viewed or removed while Firefox is running.
Up to 30% Faster Performance (Sorry PLUS Only)
Real-time scanning uses 30% less CPU than the polling pr ovided by the free version. The real-time component has been optimized using more direct machine language then its original C coding.
Conflict reduction with other security applications.
Scotty has always worked and play well with others. WinPat rol.exe has been optimized to handle the results of any Windows hooks in it's own code space reducing any conflicts with other security programs.
