WinPatrol 10

I'm pleased today to release the newest, and most exciting, WinPatrol version 10!

 Hidden Icon   Hidden Files
Scotty can now be set to monitor Hidden files in critical system areas. A new list of Hidden Files is available to help you clean up your machine. Almost all new infiltration 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.

Task Icon   Date & Time Program First Detected
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. This new 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.

File Type Icon   Lock File Type Associations
This 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.

PLUS Icon   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.  HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon\Notify
Examples:WGALogon(Windows Genuine Advantage), GoToMyPC,Adware.Look2Me (O20)

Yes, if you've downloaded the sneak peak version 10.0.0.2 you'll want to download the final version 10.0.1.0.

The final version includes a number of new features including the Notify registry location and the feature to lock file types.

Okay Bill, cheers. Upgraded!
Oh someone asked in the WP forum about the alternative set-up; is it possible for v10 yet? Steve
