do you use WinPatrol ?.........
Could have used another category...
No - not needed with current setup but love Scotty
I have much respect for Bill and his ethics as in not including the ask toolbar in his software (this came up some time ago) and I do have a license for both Winpatrol as well as Taskcatcher but am not currently running either as they are not needed with my current setup.
Replaced that with Kingsoft PC Doctor.
No...it's no needed in my current setup.
I use the Plus version.
........guess I should have used that, ay?.....
I use the WinPatrol Plus
using the plus version.......
WinPatrol Pro Love It!!
I did like WP the last time I tried it, but it doesn't add any protection over what I already have.
No, I don't use it. I have my bases covered by Malware Defender.
I always use it......Scotty alerts me to things on occasion....Obviously its not my main security app.....but I've yet to see any convincing arguments to prove its worthless.
I think WinPatrol is a great little program and is extremely light.
Whether you think it is needed or not it should be on your pc.
It has alerted me a couple of times when start up entries have been added sneakily.
Its a big thumbs up from me.
I consider WinPatrol more like a HIDS than a HIPS and since i already have a HIPS i don't think it is necessary at all.
In the past yes, but now I think no need for it. My current protection setup was just fine for me.
I like WP for some of it's features (esp. as an info and simple startup monitoring tool) but I won't compare it to "HIPS" like Comodo, Online Armor, etc. I have the Plus version and use it on an ON and OFF basis. I'm not using it atm though.
I don't need it on my XP machine, but will try it when I get Win7.
"WinPatrol works its best under Windows 7 but is still the world's most optimized monitor for Windows XP & Vista systems."
No need at the moment
I paid full price for WP last year, but eventually realized that I do not need it. It's slow to react even with realtime monitoring enabled, and more often, it doesn't react at all. Oh well, live and learn!
i agree good product. i bought a key when he did his dollar sale.
I use the plus version, but don't love it. I love my pc, but not Scotty . What were you thinking? It's only software!
Aw? Now look what you did. Poor Scotty is all sad face.
