WinPatrol PLUS provides an ironclad level of protection from unwanted system changes and malware installations. WinPatrol PLUS maintains constant vigilance over your computer, inspecting system resources, startup processes, background programs, browser toolbars and cookies with a critical eye.

If WinPatrol PLUS detects you, an application, or anybody else attempting to change something on your machine, the program will block the change until you've had the opportunity to review and approve it. Nothing on your computer - no startup applications, Windows services, critical system resources, browser settings, or files and programs - can change without you knowing about it.


WinPatrol PLUS's approach of active monitoring is vastly superior to other programs which rely on pre-defined viral data signatures and lengthy full-system scans to identify potential threats. No matter how new and subversive the malware, WinPatrol PLUS's algorithm will stop them from installing themselves to your system without the tedium of the typical full system scan-report-quarantine routine!

At the core of WinPatrol PLUS lies the Real-time Infiltration Detection system, which provides immediate detection of newly installed programs without any impact on system performance - no more hijackings, malware attacks, or critical system changes even if you've been duped by a particularly convincing pop-up window or link! With WinPatrol PLUS, you can inspect background processes that are running on your computer, with the option to disable entries or mark them for deletion. Suspicious and hard-to-recognize files can immediately be researched using an online database of more than 20,000 programs, which will instantly tell you whether that funky filename is a malware threat or a necessary system resource file!

Protect yourself today with the ultimate watchdog program, WinPatrol PLUS!

Allan Fibecker Oh yes, I regret, I didn't buy the Family Plus Pack, when I bought licence for one computer. However, it can be registred at another computers in the house without any hassle at all - even it's a single user licence - but I won't depend on it in future. It's a must have program for me - even the database hasn't been updated properly for a long time. The PLUS features should work, but the program don't know even very well known programs. Hope, that'll be fixed very soon. Otherwise the free version will do.

_*_ This is a fine program and worth the asking price. On top of it being an excellent program, it has lifetime updates. It is good to mention, customers are treated as if they truly matter, This is how all software should run, and customer service should operate.
Thank you

Bertie Brummel Are there known conflicts with
-Laspersky IS 2014 or younger
-Windows Defender
-QFX KeyScrambler?

Doug Atkinson For Bertie: I've run it just fine with Malwarebytes and Microsoft's Forefront (same engine as Defender, I believe) without issue. I can't speak to the other programs, but you can download WinPatrol and try it for yourself for free.

VLM For years, I have built my computer security around WinPatrol, SpyShelter, MailWasher, and one or two other programs. No need for anti-virus programs with their massive, constantly-updating databases. MailWasher catches incoming mail before it ever hits my system, enabling me to wipe out mail from potential evil-doers quickly and with ease. SpyShelter catches changes to the registry and some other vulnerable places, and it protects against keyloggers. WinPatrol overlaps with SpyShelter to an extent ... sometimes I get dual messages ... but it covers all sorts of system changes such as attempts to add new services, startup modules, and much more. The program also provides a means for removing and controlling startup programs (remove, disable, delay startup, etc.) and for monitoring and working with services, tasks, scheduled tasks, ActiveX controls, hidden files, file types, and more.

Allan Fibecker's comment, above, is correct: the PLUS database hasn't been updated in some time. But it may interest people to know that WinPatrol is now under new ownership. I have corresponded with Bret Lowry, the new owner, and he is VERY enthusiastic about updating and improving the product in hundreds of ways, large and small, from little UI tweaks to major feature additions.. He is also very receptive to input; I've even forwarded to him some content from prior conversations here, so that he has early visibility, and he has responded most constructively.

So this is the BEST time, in my opinion, to buy into the program.

Bertie Brummel - I'm not "the expert", but based upon what I understand about the design and operation of WinPatrol, it is unlikely that it would conflict with programs such as you list, simply because it doesn't operate in a way that interferes with such programs. It simply monitors and reports, allowing the user to accept or reject a myriad of attempted system changes before they take place. In the immortal words of Nancy Reagan, it gives me the power to "just say no".

martin weeks Winpatrol is a limited hips and so should work fine with mbam and windows defender.

I dont know if qfx keyscrambler employs hips like zemana anitlogger does.

Kaspersky is the most likely conflict but havent used kaspersky for a year or two.

Bertie Brummel Thanks to all responders. Some answers confused me a little bit at first. English is not my native language and so I wondered about the "hips" you mentioned. Some www queries let me think you're talking about HIPS (host intrusion protection system? .

Allan Fibecker Hi, Bertie. I run Bitdefender Total Security 2015 along with MBAM and Win Patrol, and there's no conflicts at all. In fact, I've never experienced any conflicts with Win Patrol - nore when I had Kaspersky I.S 2013. Btw, you don't need Windows Defender for anything. In fact, it's just a good for nothing program - even it's written by Microsoft to protect Microsoft's own Operative Systems. Hilarious, isn't it :o)

If you run a good AV suite as K.I.S. 2014/2015 along with MBAM, you won't need anything else than Win Patrol - in my honest opinion. Just a recommendation. I hope, you'll find exactly the solution, that fits you and your system the best :-)

martin weeks Bertie:
Yes it is the host intrusion protection system.
Winpatrol is a basic/limited HIPS for startup locations with a few extras.

Its Simple to understand being its main advantage.
lt is a lifetime license rather than a subscription which is why i have bought it today even though i have outpost firewall pro which can be setup up as a more advanced hips if required.

Bertie Brummel Thanks again. In the meantime I received the Family Pack code and am looking forward to a busy evening now ;-)

Allan Fibecker @VLM. Thanks a lot for your update about the new ownership of Win Patrol. Great to hear, it's a dedicated developer, who took over. Now, it's for sure, I'll by The Family Pack - and I will promote it on my web site it-support :-)
