Get rid of unwanted background programs like spyware, adware, and worms

Your PC is valuable, so it needs something constant vigilance that will monitor the programs it is running and notify you if anything seems out of the ordinary.

WinPatrol performs this guard duty by monitoring all programs running on your computer, even those that are hidden, and notifying you if any attempt is made to install something unauthorized, set itself to run automatically upon startup, change your home page, or install something else that shouldn’t be.

The offending programs can be removed, their automatic startup can be stopped, or you can simply keep an eye on them to see what they do.

Delayed Start is another useful feature that helps Windows load more quickly. This is so that you can force non-essential programs to start up to an hour after the system boots using Delayed Start. That’s perfect for applications like pop-up blockers or backup software.

BillP Studios produced the free version, which is entirely functional.

This enables you to comprehend the programs that are being added to your computer better.

It keeps an eye on crucial system components that malicious programs frequently change. This includes the startup folder and registry, as well as the startup groups, cookies, and running tasks. Activate or deactivate startup programs, as well as terminate processes. If a keyword is present in the cookie name, you can use the cookie monitoring option to automatically delete cookies. A WHOIS lookup tool and a change alert option are additional features.

Despite being subtly effective, this program is simple to use. The Plus version is an optional upgrade.

Upgraded keylogger detection is now available to all users in WinPatrol 14.0.
