BillP Studios has released version 20.0 of WinPatrol, the first release in 2011. In this program, ‘Scotty, the Windows watchdog’ monitors the system, making it faster and more stable. Scotty detects and stops attacks from spy, ad and malware, viruses and malicious Internet Explorer add-ons, while also preventing home page hijacks. A few other things are also monitored, including the processes running on the PC, the hosts file, and file extensions. In addition to the free version, there is also a paid one Plus variant, which provides access to a database with extensive information about programs and processes, which states, for example, whether they are safe or malicious. The release notes for this version are as follows:

What’s New?
The last new version of WinPatrol was released in early November, 2010 just before Scotty’s 11th birthday. This week I’m happy to announce to release the new and improved WinPatrol 2011. Scotty even has a new 2011 look As more computers are sold with the 64 bit version of Window we’ve worked hard to keep up and make sure Scotty doesn’ It was behind the technology. We found some quirks on 64 bit systems but thanks to support from our friends at Microsoft and other security vendors we’ve created version that runs faster than ever on 64 bit systems.

Active Task
You’ll notice more information available on our list of Active Tasks. Sorting on the module ID you’ll be able to see which DLL files are used by running tasks. You’ll find two new columns and on newer versions of Windows with additional information. Over the years this has been a popular request and we will continue to add information which is useful to all users. Active Tasks is usually the first place you’ll check to remove any unwanted programs from reappearing so the more information the better.

ZeroDay Alerts
WinPatrol 2011 responds far better to repeating alerts from unknown sources. These infiltrations can happen to anyone just having a vulnerable application on their computer. Files which are repeating alerts are also tracked to provide quicker creation of PLUS Info for new threats.

Delayed Start
This new feature is proving to be very popular with new users. We fixed a bug on 64 bit systems when moving programs from the Startup Programs list to Delayed Start.

Display bug fixed when changing startup status. Fixed bug in 64 bit Windows when displaying non-Microsoft Services only.

Corrected Internet error message when trying to activate PLUS features. We obviously want to make it as easy as possible to upgrade from the Free Edition to WinPatrol PLUS. We continue to make it a great deal even for folks short on cash and the future of WinPatrol really depends on continued support from our PLUS members.
