WinPatrol is a “must have” security app that monitors critical, commonly attacked, areas of your computer AND alerts you when changes are about to take place. It is like having a guard dog on patrol at all times. As a matter of fact, WinPatrol features a little Scotty dog that stands on patrol in your system tray and will actually bark when the perimeter has been breached. Once Scotty has alerted you, it is up to you to decide whether it is friend or foe. Scotty does not fix anything, he simply alerts you that changes are about to take place. Most occasions those changes are OK, like when installing software; however, when in doubt you can deny access until you confirm the credibility of the instrusion.
A robust System Monitor, WinPatrol.exe will alert users to malware attacks, hijackings and critical changes made to a computer without their permission. WinPatrol PLUS includes our unique R.I.D. technology which works much differently than other similar programs.
This tiny program runs in the background without slowing you down. Scotty works and plays well with others so you won’t find conflicts with other security based programs. WinPatrol was developed in Microsoft “C” and Assembler to stay small and fast.
WinPatrol is one of the first Security apps that I install on a PC. I definitely would not be without it and have been a user since Scotty was a puppy. Today, I discovered that a new version of WinPatrol was released that uses the power of cloud computing that allows everyone to become a force in collaboratively sharing when something works and when something does not. As they say, power is in numbers. The accumulative data collected and polled by WinPatrol users will serve to benefit us all.
