    I have just looked at the new 2010 Winpatrol and it sure looks much better than the annoying older versions that I tried many moons ago. Need some info. before I do something wrong and wreck my computer.

    Currently I am running the paid version of Malwarebytes with my ESET. Is that enough? (I'm praying they're compatible, they should be by my logic but I don't even know if they are.)

    From what I'm reading about the "drastically new and improved" Winpatrol 2010, it doesn't sound like it to me.

    1) What does the people in the know here recommend please?

    2) More importantly, are these programs ALL compatible?

    Thank you. Fortunately for me that is not a problem at all. Mine updates just fine and fast. (Crossing fingers)

    I'm very, very tempted to get that Winpatrol. In Piriform forums I saw a member or 2 who had:

    Eset
    Winpatrol
    Malwarebytes
    Spywarwblaster

    With all that, I sure would feel a heck of a lot more protected that I would relying on just ESET alone.

    Same question: Are all those together Compatible? I should think any and all anti-spyware programs could and SHOULD be - so long as it's not another anti-virus program.

    WinPatrol is not an AV or a AntiSpy App so why would you get issues ?

    I certainly do not using Pro version and its less buggy than ESS ever will be.

    You can have too many App's doing same thing on your PC BTW.

    Version 18 is due soon and its going to have some major changes and new functions (still 2010 Build.).

    Your post is appreciated muchly but is rather cryptic - abbreviated in many places so it's rather hard for me to understand you clearly. In some places, I have no idea what you mean

    What Pro version are you speaking of? What exactly is buggy and why do you think so? Are you say that you are using the free version WinPatrol from last year (2009) and in your way are trying to tell me that you think I should also ? I'm grasping at straws here trying to interpret your reply which I appreciate very much.

    Yes, I understand about too many applications but it's astounding how many people use at least 4 of them. Minimum.

    The new Winpatrol looks so good because it is 1000% different this year from all past versions, ergo my AVID interest. I truly wonder if I can use it along with my Malwarebytes and my ESET Smart Security. I really really would like to know what everyone suggests before I go ahead and get it and then blow up my computer.

    MOST importantly, what is "build 2018" and "build 2010" please? Sounds very important and like something I should know about.

    Thanks again, very much.

    I am in the UK so use real English and do not see how you find my post either cryptic or abbreviated !

    It is very obvious I'm using 2010 as I replied to your thread and never mentioned 2009.

    I also never mentioned build 2018, I said build 18 is due soon as current build is 17 (both are still 2010).

    This info is freely available for all to see on the WinPatrol website.

    When I said "WinPatrol PRO" I actually meant PLUS (my mistake), AKA The PAID for version not FREE version.

    I never said anything in WinPatrol was buggy but ESS sure IS (read this forum to find out).

    Hello,

    I am not aware of any issues between ESET's software and BillP Studio's WinPatrol.

    i had a look at winpatrol when i first read this post. and simply love it. it works great with eset smart 4.2.40 here. i have minor issues with smart, so i don't use sleep or it finds a new network and moving large files and world of warcraft create tcp logs all over firewall log.
    but performance wide if you want set and forget low nag security take a look at this combination, win patrol uses 1 process and 2.3k ram in background mode. no start up delay.
    only had 1 pop up (in normal use not testing) was for unity flash installer (tiger woods online)
    really enjoying this set up.

    Good to see you found out about WinPatrol, it really is one of the best App's ever. :)

    I would recommend anyone pays for it after a short test run, pity you missed the one time only offer of it for 99cent.

    Once you pay for it its your for life including updates on ALL PC's you own in your home (license is per person not per PC). :)

    Until recently the Plus version only differed by "realtime protection" and Plus Info but now its also faster than Free version.

    I always have trouble understanding the techie talk in forums like these and need everything spelled out in fully detailed English, that's all I meant. For example, there are a few things in "stratoc's" post that I don't understand but I won't belabor the issue.

    I just had a talk with a friend of my husband's who is a total techie nerd and this is what he told me. In short, WinPatrol is compatible with all anti-virus programs including Nod 32 and ESET Smart Security but since I am using the paid version of Malwarbytes along with my ESET, that is all I need. I am covered. He said anything else would be overkill and would very likely slow my computer down.

    So, I finally got my answer and thought that I would share it with all of you. Thank you very much for your help.

    Take care and be well!!!

    Does that mean you are running ESET and paid Malwarebytes and winpatrol 2010> Or just ESET and winpatrol?
