WinPatrol 33.6.2015.1

WinPatrol alerts you to hijackings, malware attacks and critical changes made to your computer without your permission. As a multipurpose support utility, WinPatrol replaces multiple system utilities with its enhanced functionality.

WinPatrol was the pioneer in using a heuristic behavioral approach to detecting attacks and violations of your computing environment. Traditional security programs scan your hard drive searching for previously identified threats. WinPatrol takes snapshots of your critical system resources and alerts you to any changes that occur without your knowledge. You'll be removing dangerous new programs while others prepare to update their definition/signature data files.

WinPatrol runs on Windows XP, Vista, Windows 7, Windows 8.x, Windows 10 & supports Windows 64-bit features without conflicts with other programs.

For those who wish to have extra features such as ActiveX Controls and Registry monitoring, you can upgrade to WinPatrol Plus.

  • Speed up your computer’s start-up by delaying start-up programs you don’t need right away.
  • Protect registry key values from being changed without your permission
