WinPatrol 2011 – What is it and what can Scotty do for you?

In the OkWU Computer Services’ second article concerning computer software maintenance and security, I would like to present WinPatrol, another FREE security software. Well, you might ask what it is, and who is Scotty??? WinPatrol is, in my opinion, the most powerful system monitor currently available to the average computer consumer. Designed by Bill Pytlovany Scotty, WinPatrol’s Scotty has been patrolling and guarding personal and company computers since 1997. So what then, you might ask, is all the hubbub about a “system monitor”?! Then I would like to ask, have you heard of malware? Many people at least have a general idea of what malware is, and if you don’t Wikipedia provides an interesting article concerning this at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Malware.

 

WinPatrol (represented in your system tray by a little Scottish terrier, a.k.a. “Scotty”) uses a heuristic behavioral approach to detect Zero-day attacks and other such violations to your computer. Take this simple analogy: imagine a burglar who tries to sneak in to your house or apartment unbeknownst to you, but your trusty guard dog is there to warn you, and prevent said burglar from entering. Scotty functions much the same. A program that offers similar system protection is SpyBot, also an excellent program, but the part of this program which offers similar security settings (teatimer.exe) has a memory footprint easily 50 times as large, which, in my opinion, is not a negligible difference. WinPatrol is available at http://www.winpatrol.com/download.html for download and is completely FREE. A Plus edition of the software does exist and offers slightly faster performance; the difference in performance in my opinion is negligible, though I do suggest users buy the plus edition to help support the great work Bill Pytlovany is doing.

The install process of WinPatrol could not be more simple and requires only a few clicks, and less than five minutes.
