WinPatrol 2007 Build 2 Pre-Release

There’s a new version of WinPatrol 2007 which I expect to release later this week. I decided it wouldn’t hurt to open it up to some of Scotty’s best friends.  If you’re a new or casual WinPatrol user please wait for our official release but if you want to help verify our new version, I appreciate the help.

We’ve added a few new things which you requested and picked off a couple fleas we found. One occurred when moving some Startup Folder items from Delayed Startup back to normal startup. 

There is also a huge performance improvement which some users will notice.  WinPatrol does a lot of reading of the Windows registry and I’ve developed a way to do so without any redundancy with other security programs.

Visibly the only change will be when you right-click on a program title. You can now explore the programs folder or view the Properties as defined by Windows.  This is especially a handy feature for Vista users since Microsoft has expanded the Properties screen.  Properties now include Digital Signatures, Security settings and access to previous versions or Shadow copies.  Access will be easier than ever with WinPatrol.
