    I wish Bill the best.

    When it comes to the future of WinPatrol,
    I hope Bill's successors
    to be as responsible and charismatic
    as Bill has been...

    Sorry to hear this kind of news my friend but I know that real life circumstances are sometimes beyond our control. Family and health always comes first and foremost so I certainly understand and support your decision. I will keep you and your family in thoughts and prayers especially for those long term positive expectations.

    For those of us who know how much hard work and dedication you have provided to the security community, you will always be the face and name behind WinPatrol.

    How gracious of you to think of WinPatrol fans at such a time.
    Well, the reverse is true as well... as we think of you, your health, and the well-being of your loved ones.
    Take good care and the rest will work itself out.
    My best to you, Bill.

    I also wish Bill and his family all the best. This thread is not about me, but I know how this feels, I´m also having health problems at the moment, I hope I will be able to keep on posting in the future. I would like to thank all the posters of Wilders Security for the last 10 years, it was a whole lot of fun. :)

    Me too, I've found it a tool to get a wealth of information when trouble shooting my computer and and a handy little security layer in my computers.

    I still have Scotty on the desktop. I've always respected Bill and admired the way he takes care and thinks of WP fans. I wish him the very best. I hope whoever takes over WP will continue Bill's amazing work and keep his goodwill alive.

    Health care comes first. I'm sure Bill will do his best to choose a genuine successor. Good luck for the future Bill and I hope your wife continues to be well. :thumb:

    I'm sorry to hear Bill that you are experiencing these troubles. A true 'old school' developer and gentleman. I hope things work out well for you and I wish you all the best and of course Scotty will look after you. ;)

    Bill,
    May God give you the strength you need, both in body and in spirit.

    The LORD bless you and keep you.
    The LORD make His face shine upon you,
    And be gracious unto you.
    The LORD lift up His countenance upon you.
    And give you peace.

    Personally I'm not concerned with the short term. I don't care if development slows or ceases for awhile, WinPatrol is working fine for me and should continue to do so. In any case, I hope Bill does take the same care for himself that he does for his users. I'm praying also.

    I hope things work out for Bill(and Rasheed).

    Scotty was the original app for the layered approach to security, fond memories of it.

    Best of luck to all in need of it.

    @ jmonge and Behold Eck

    Thanks :), right now I´m not really sure how serious it is, perhaps I was being a bit too emotional, also because of the news of Bill, but it did cross my mind that perhaps I don´t have that much time left. Especially also because my father died at quite a young age because of heart disease. It´s best to stay as positive as possible, because it can also become a mental issue.
