    Just trying out WinPatrol. That's a busy UI. What feature/s of WinPatrol do you guys use regularly? What's it best features?

    I like the startup manager and the IE Add-ons manager. I used to use the startup delay option too, but now I prefer Soluto for that. Winpatrol alerts to system changes and that might help you catch something you don't want on the system, but I think its' main strength is it brings together a lot of information that you otherwise have to access through mulitple UI's in the OS.

    I use regscanner to search for Winpatrol Plus Info in the shell context menu, (It became a habit of mine when uninstalling software, search with Regscanner and delete keys manually :D). Or you could install it again, disable shell context menu, then uninstall again.

    Glary Utilities let you disable right-click items, you could try the demo version and see if it works for you. Also WinPatrol support could help you with that, I am sure they would !

    WinPatrol PLUS information is not available to non-license holders. That said, if you are not a PLUS subscriber and no longer want to use WinPatrol, it could be you did not have a clean uninstall. See my instructions here for how to completely remove WinPatrol from your computer.
