WinPatrol Maintenance Release 16.0.2009.2

I’ve often talked about how there are so many different favors of Windows out there. It’s one of the reasons why beta testing is difficult these days.
Windows versions are like SnowFlakes

When WinPatrol 2009 was released we had over 100,000 downloads in the first week.  Naturally, there were so many different system configurations there were a few problems that I was alerted too.  Unless it’s somehow dangerous, I usually wait a couple weeks before releasing a fix just to be sure there aren’t other problem reports.

Here’s a summary of what’s new.

1) On some Vista systems, WinPatrol 2009.1 conflicted with a Windows library called NTDLL.DLL. The new build has fixed this problem.

2) I’ve also had some folks getting notified more than they should that WinPatrol needed to switch UAC mode.  This has also been corrected.

3) Clicking on Active Tasks on the WinPatrol system tray menu would go to the Recent list instead of Active Tasks.  Corrected.

Unless you’ve experience the problems above there’s no reason why you need to bother upgrading but you’re always welcome to use our newest version for no additional fee.

Special thanks to everyone who reported problems and provided details and screen shots to make my life easier.

International users: I will be updating all the localized setup programs this week as quickly as I can build and test them.

Hi Bill, Re your comment that Windows comes with many favors. Yes I agree, you do get the feeling that with each Windows version, Microsoft thinks they are doing us a favour.
