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.
* Reduced Memory Footprint : The monitor component of WinPatrol has been optimized and shrunk so WinPatrol.exe is now only 313 KB instead of its previous 336 KB size. You won't find a smaller Windows system monitor as powerful as WinPatrol.
* Additional Support for Firefox 3 and Google Chrome : Since Firefox 3 changed from cookie.txt to SQLite database format Scotty hasn't been hungry for Firefox cookies. Support for Firefox 3 has been the single most requested features. Turns out I was able to include support for the SQLite format without increasing the size of WinPatrol.exe. While I was at it I also included support for Google Chrome which also uses SQLite to store their cookies. Note: Firefox cookie can not be viewed or removed while Firefox is running.
* Conflict reduction with other security applications : Scotty has always worked and play well with others. WinPatrol.exe has been optimized to handle the results of any Windows hooks in it's own code space reducing any conflicts with other security programs.
