    How does the PayPal purchase work? Is it 99 cents through PayPal or is there a credit back? Thanks

    Thanks, this is a very generous offer. :thumb:
    I hope you succeed in generating extra income once the offer is finished and when people see just what a great program Winpatrol is.

    When i got WinPatrol Plus it was Dad's day and it was at about 13$? That was a good deal.

    1$? That's a steal! :argh:

    Hi everybody,

    No offense intended but doesn't the combo MS Sysinternals autoruns/process explorer accomplish the same thing done by WinPatrol?
    I mean, I remember using the free version of WP in the days of MS Windows 98 but it's been a while since then.

    Any changes I'm not aware of?

    Regards,

    Carlos

    P.S.: I can not deny the fact that this offer is excellent, a steal. In fact I'd like to see more offers like this one from other software vendors in the future.

    Never tried this before, but I thought I would since this seems to be an excellent offer.

    Can anyone tell me why there are two processes listed for WinPatrol in active tasks?

    Usually with PayPal purchases any transaction fees are charged to the seller.
    Is that what you mean?

    I only have one WinPatrol (WinPatrol.exe) service showing in Task Manager.

    I do too. I'm taking about within the WinPatrol interface itself, under active tasks.

    One in Winpatrol.exe, the other is Winpatrolex.exe.

    Edit: Looks like the ex is just the interface being open from what I can see. I still would like to know why there are two startups though.

    Also, if I look in the Startup Programs, I see two there as well. One seems related to 64-bit.

    I can't claim to know why, but it looks like you have two of iTunesHelper, Avast5, and 00PCTFW on that list as well. The only differences seem to be that some are HKLM_RUN, while the others are x64_RUN entries - across the board, not just for WinPatrol.

    No offense taken. Process Explorer is an advanced process management utility that replaces Windows Task manager.
    Autoruns shows you what programs are configured to run during system bootup or login.
    Neither do anything to alert or prevent changes to any system files.

    Yep, you are correct. I was looking at the WinPatrol ones and didn't even notice that. I've since read under 64-bit systems, this is common and Windows will only load the services once.

    Thanks Bill

    I'm definitely going to get it. The 1 day deal and all the positive comments have convinced me. Probably end up telling all my friends.

    No it doesn't, WinPatrol monitors your computer and alerts you when new activeX controls and IE helpers are installed, when new services are installed, when a program registers itself to start with windows, or when a file type association changes, and this is just the free version.

    Hi Bill. What an outrageous deal!

    Question: Is the coupon-less sale in fact Feb. 29th, or is the following (imaged) quote (from here) just a misprint:

    TIA.
