WinPatrol PLUS 10 Image


The above-image is from our friend –> Bits from Bill and I find it not just a bit but a big bit because WinPatrol v10 now…




  • Monitor Hidden Files files in critical system areas. A new list of Hidden Files is available to help you clean up your machine. Almost all new infiltrations and/or root kits will attempt hiding their files but Scotty can detect them in real-time before any serious danger can be done. While many hidden files are normal system files, the introduction of new hidden files should be questioned. Now it can be.  The ability to delete hidden files will allow proper system cleanup. Right-click on the hidden file to view or delete.


  • Ever wonder when a new file was first introduced to your system? 
    WinPatrol 10 detects and records the introduction of new program files and malware infiltrations. The “Date & Time Program First Detected” feature will allow you to detect files which have all infiltrated your system at the same time. Even if they have random file names or file names matching legitimate files you can sort files by Date Detected and Kill them all at once.


  • Lock File Type Associations  – A checkbox on the Options tab will allow you to keep your desired File Type associations settings without being annoyed by persistent programs.  Scotty will automatically restore your original settings.


  • More Secret Startup Locations including WinLogon/Notify
    WinPatrol PLUS now monitors even more non-tradition Startup locations found in the registry. Disable unwanted programs including the Windows Genuine Advantage.
