    Default WinPatrol 18

    WinPatrol v18.0.2010.0 Released

    Whats New

    Already a Startup Manager, Security Monitor, Task Manager, Education library & yet the new Custom WinPatrol v18 will have even more!

    Custom Registry Monitoring and Lock Down

    The newest version of confirms that WinPatrol is a must have addition to any traditional AntiVirus program. WinPatrol continues its tradition of being a first. The new custom Registry Lock feature could be a application all by itself but instead it will be integrated into the robust real-time monitoring of WinPatrol PLUS.

    The most common threat to Windows based security has been the modification of secret and not-so-secret registry entries used by the operating system and most applications. Over the years malware authors have found ways to take control of a users system by tweaking various registry entries. Only experts with knowledge of programs like regedit.exe have stood a chance at protecting their systems.

    Traditional security programs have played a cat and mouse game to keep up with newly discovered registry tweaks. Now with WinPatrol 2010 v18’s, newly discovered tweaks can be added immediately to WinPatrol’s real-time monitoring. Registry values can be manually added or included in a batch script file created by experts and other 3rd party developers.

    Running completely in the background WinPatrol PLUS will monitor for changes and lock down specific registry entries so they can’t be changed.
    WinPatrol already locks down AutoRun entries, FileType associations and a host of other system configurations. Now, users can pick and choose registry entries they decide should never change.

    Not sure how the registry works? Online experts will create custom scripts to protect those configuration locations important to you.

    • Protection from ActiveX errors. WinPatrol lets you know when new ActiveX components are installed on your system. WinPatrol version 18 now includes this feature as bonus to PLUS members to protect novice users from accidently disabling critical ActiveX controls.

    • PLUS Code Security. Due to the large number of illegal keygen and pirate sites I've had to increase the verification of your name and PLUS codes. This may cause an occasional error with PLUS members using valid codes. This step is required to make sure our PLUS members can always access our website.



    No need to Uninstall previous versions. Install the new WinPatrol in the same folder as your current version.

    WinPatrol via Twitter:
    WinPatrol 18.1 now available at WinPatrol.com. Windows 64 bit compatibility issues have been fixed.
    From: WinPatrol Update Information
    NOTE: At this time, WinPatrol 18 does not support Windows 98/ME/2K. This is a temporary problem and not an indication of loss of support. We're currently working to address this problem and expect a new release soon.

    I believe itt was mentioned on WinPatrol site (oh and by Corrine here too in the first post), that this could be a possibility and that in such a case you could contact WinPatrol Support for a new license.

    Fortunately I did not face this issue.

    problem solved, emailed Bill & got a reply 20 min later.
    might be a good idea to save your code before you upgrade...

    Its related to the PLUS Code Security. As of two days ago, 1000 keygen users had been disabled.
