WinPatrol monitors your computer and does not allow applications to simply add themselves to the startup menu or associate files to themselves. Everything is caught by winpatrol. It then asks if you agree to what modifications are being done or not.

    Excellent Program ! One of the first things I install on a new computer. Sure, I use a good AV and MalwareBytes, but Winpatrol warns me every time someone tries to sneak an Auto-Updater or something worse into my startup..... or Tries to change my browser homepage or File associations without permission. Very light on resources, and the paid "Plus" version is well worth the few bucks.

    Great program, useful & worth every penny for the plus version - The guy who runs it has ethics too.

    This update is actually quite old but a most useful program, well worth buying the Plus version.

    Warns me of programs removed & start up programs removed or added & windows systems added & more, well worth running on any PC - A must have & I can't fault this program or the developer.

    I've been using Winpatrol for years on all of my computers. It has always done what it is meant to do and it's very user friendly. I have nothing negative to say about it.
