WinPatrol

Recommended Posts

Hi.

I'm thinking of installing WinPatrol free alongside OA free and MSE

Does anyone tried this combo? Are there any issues?

Any feedback will be wellcome.

Regards,

Jose.

P.S. What do you think about WinPatrol (free and pro)? I find it a very interesting app. Not the most effective but (in my opinion) a wonderful add to a layered security approach.

Software compatibility is always dependent upon individual OS, security programs installed and configuration.

I can only speak to my experience with my OS and configuration and as you can see from my signature, I have run Winpatrol Plus and OA++ side by side for a long time and have never had a compatibility problem. :)

Considering OA includes HIPS, will there be a certain amount of overlap with WinPatrol?

Is there a way to see everything that OA is monitoring, to compare it with other programs that provide similar functions?

I just found out one thing about WinPatrol: it doesn't protect you in real time, even the Plus version (it doesn't block and alert like a HIPS). It will alert you only after a change is made and if you click "no" it will rollback the change (wich won't work with a nasty virus).

A user in another forum sent me a snapshot:
