WinPatrol

WinPatrol - puts you back in control of your PC

review by ClifNotes on 6/18/05, updated August 2007 permalink PC Activity Monitoring

 

WinPatrol has been a standard part of almost every PC I use. It is typically one of the first programs I load on a new PC. Version 12 adds the option to generate a Hijack log (similar to HijackThis log) so that you can post it into help forums like TeMerc's.

Quote from the website - Scotty the Windows Watch Dog sniffs out malicious "mysteryware" , web attacks and parasites that may assault your computer. WinPatrol puts you back in control of your computer so you'll know what programs are and should be running at all times. WinPatrol uses a heuristic approach to detecting attacks and violations of your computing environment. Traditional security programs scan your hard drive searching for previously identified threats. WinPatrol takes snapshot of your critical system resources and alerts you to any changes that may occur without your knowledge. You'll be removing dangerous new programs while others download new reference files.
