WinPatrol 2007 Beta - Scotty is on patrol with a new feature

review from ClifNotes, Jan 2007, permalink _ Security Tools


I saw a new version of WinPatrol available and immediately went out to try it. I wasn't disappointed. WinPatrol has been on my machines for the last two years and I'd feel like my PC was naked without it.


As usual, Scotty, the Windows watchdog sits in the system tray and barks to warn you when an application makes changes to your Windows system that he feels could be important. I've previously mentioned intrusion detection software before and WinPatrol does a good job for me.


Quote from the website

The newest feature of WinPatrol will greatly accelerate your system startup time. While WinPatrol 2007 has been improved in many ways our favorite new feature is called "Delayed Start". You probably have programs which you do want running in the background but you don't need to launch immediately on boot up. WinPatrol's Delayed Start allows you to specify the time to wait before launching programs which may typically try to load while other system initialization are happening.


Scotty is away right now

He's on my PC watching for malware

but I'm willing to share him with you
