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!

Nelson Therrien For those who wonders, I got it many years ago from another website...

I recommend it. A feature that doesn't seem to be mentioned is that you can prevent certain softwares from loading at startup or simply postpone it (since you know you will need it, but it's not the first thing you'll do after a startup...

Sarsfield I have also owned this for many years. Resides quietly in the background and has a huge number of useful features. It will show you everything that's running on your PC and with the Plus version, you can look up each program, process, Activex add-on, IE helper, service or task in the huge user database to insure it's safety. Just double click it in the program and you'll be whisked away to see all the info you'll ever need. I keep tabs on everything running on my PC with this very robust little helper.

h s Great little program that keeps track of automated crap installations and has a ton of other handy tools aboard.

BitsDuJohnny Good Day! I hope All are enjoying a pleasant one. I've been using it for years as well. I don't use any other anti-virus or malware protection. I even have malware/spyware detection turned off in my Chrome browser. I have Never had an issue with any virus or malware. This is a very good thing for me in that my Netbook has very little memory, and resources need to be conserved. The average AV/Malware program hogs a lot of memory and resources.

I also like the PLUS Info... the ability to look up "stuff" in an online database of programs, and system files that you may see running in the background or startup of your system. You can find out more info about the file and decide what to do with it, or to help you troubleshoot things.

WinPatrol PLUS has many features, and I don't believe they are all mentioned here. It seems that Mr. "Bill" has given things a lot of thought and has done a Great Job with his application.

Keep Up The Great Work Mr. Bill... I for one surely do appreciate WinPatrol PLUS and how it so easily and economically, from a resource and financial standpoint, keeps my system running smoothly and safely.

...and to All... in the end, they're just computers... stuff... don't fuss over them... Enjoy Everything!

"You can never do a kindness too soon, for you never know how soon, it will be too late" - Ralph Waldo Emerson

Ps. everytime the program spots an anomaly, it "woofs" at you an everytime the scotty dog "woofs" on my system, it gets my dog's attention...

Adam Bridge I assume this doesn't work with Windows 8 given it only states Windows 7 ? Tried looking on the website but couldn't see anything about the operating system requirements.

Sarsfield Works fine on my Win 8 laptop. From the website:

"WinPatrol continues to run on Windows XP, Vista, Windows 7, Windows 8, & supports all Windows 64 bit features without conflicting with similar programs."

Tortuga Was wondering, does anybody know if the 'Single License' or 'Family Pack' also cover the portable 'WinPatrolToGo' ? Or is that a separate license? TIA

Software Guy WinPatrolToGo is free, but if you are a Plus user, you can activate your plus features Here is the page describing WinPatrolToGo:
So the single license or Family Pack key will work. It is a great tool when you need to work on someone's computer, and it makes available quite a bit of information about the computer you are working on. Plus features startup, delayed start, IE helpers, scheduled tasks, services, activeX, registry monitoring, cookies, active tasks, recent files, hidden files, file types and lots of other stuff. It is a great tool. And the woof of the Scotty is a great audible alarm that something needs attention.
Hope that helps.
