WinPatrol PLUS Contest Winners

Bill Pytlovany generously donated five licenses for WinPatrol PLUS to me to award to my readers. I sincerely thank him for that.


Scotty the Windows watchdog

WinPatrol consistently earns 5 stars and is a frequent “Editor’s Choice”.

WinPatrol’s Host-based Intrusion Prevention System (HIPS) takes snapshot of your critical system resources and alerts you to any changes that may occur without your knowledge. WinPatrol was the pioneer in using a heuristic behavioral approach to detecting attacks and violations of your computing environment. It continues to be the most powerful system monitor for its small memory footprint.

WinPatrol’s easy tabbed interface allows you to explore deep inside your computer without having to be a computer expert. A one-time investment in WinPatrol PLUS provides a unique experience you won’t find in any other software.”

WinPatrol is freeware, and a “portable version” is available for carrying on your ‘thumbdrive toolkit’. WinPatrol PLUS is a way of supporting Scotty, and includes important extra features. A comparison chart of the editions is here, and downloads here.

And the winners are…!

Winners have been sent an e-mail, containing their license keys, with the subject “WinPatrol PLUS License Winner”. (You may need to check your Junk folder.)

My thanks to all who participated in this contest.

  10. Thanks you Paul & BillP. I’m late to respond, but yes I got the license information yesterday.

    I plan to install it today/tomorrow and set my system flying.

    Would I be eligible to get the updates for it (major + minor), or it is having a fixed time validity for 1 year or so?

    • Grr,
      Congratulations again!

      PLUS membership is lifetime, and can be applied to any computers you personally own — more reasons WinPatrol PLUS ‘membership’ is an exceptional value!
