WinPatrol 2007(Version 12)

Quote from Bill Pytlovany:

I'm again pleased to announce a new and improved WinPatrol. Thank you for telling your friends and co-workers about WinPatrol. In November we'll be celebrating the 10th Anniversary of WinPatrol. It wouldn't have been possible without your support.

What's New

A. New Scotty Icon
You'll see a brand new icon in your taskbar. Many users are using the default dark theme in Vista and have suggested a new icon so they can see Scotty and feel more secure.

B. Two New Report Options
Folks have been asking for more information especially for helping their friends and family fix problems. Our new version includes two new output formats designed to help diagnose any problem.

1. HijackPatrol Log
The new HijackPatrol Log button on the options screen will create and display a style of output familiar to many online helpers. HiJackPatrol.logs aren't exact duplicates of the popular HijackThis log or meant to replace them but the format should be familiar. HijackPatrol logs will also contain additional information which is routinely monitored by WinPatrol.
2. SpreadSheet Log
Important details will be output in a CSV(Comma Separated Value) format popular with spreadsheets and many database programs. WinPatrol users will be able to sort all their system data in any format they want.

C. Easy Access to PLUS Info
Program properties and PLUS Info have been combined into a single page of information from our extensive online library. Instead of multiple steps, you can now just double click on any filename to access the new improved PLUS format. Free WinPatrol users will also see improved information to help them decide if a program is worthy.

D. PLUS Requests updated for future expansion
This change also allows us to expand our PLUS Info response and provide more specific and helpful information based on more than just a filename. You'll see some additions immediately when using WinPatrol 2007 version 12.

E. Bugs Fixed
Yea, I found one or two
1. Fix size bug in autodetection of Explorer/Run/Policy autostart entry
2. Auto correct screen position errors on multiple monitor systems when registry has been corrupted.
3. Local flag sent for any country code and not just ones currently supported
4 .Secret Startup location checkbox now available immediately after entering PLUS name/code.
5. Found solution to why Scotty's bark was silent in Vista.
6. Fixed bug reading large HOST, WinPatrol History and Netscape Cookie files

Thank you for your support!
