WinPatrol Help - Main Menu
When you click on the Info... you'll be presented with the
WinPatrol Program Info windows. This screen will display any
information Scotty can find out about a program based on information on
your computer. On the top of the screen you'll see the Name and Title of a program.
If the program contains additional information regarding its company, version and
copyright we'll display this information.
Typically, a legitimate program will include this information.
The lack of information however does not mean the program isn't safe.
Double-Clicking on a filename or clicking this button will connect you to the WinPatrol online database of program information. Connecting you to our online WinPatrol database will provide human readable information about a program. You'll also find links to even more information. One of our newest features, the WinPatrol Cloud, provides information collected by the decisions of other WinPatrol fans. WinPatrol PLUS upgrade is required to access the PLUS Info... button.
The Previous and Next buttons displayed with the arrows above can be used to cycle through all the programs within a specific tab group.
If the Program Info screen isn't fully opened the "Expand Info" button will provide additional information including details saved by the disk operating system. You'll also be able to create a note about the current file.
Create Note / Save Note
The Create Note button allows you to
add comments and annotate programs found on your system. Forget why
you wanted to keep a program or wonder who installed it? Add a
WinPatrol note to your WinPatrol folder.
