100% Detections of the Top Spyware Threats
WinPatrol 9.7 has been tested against the top Spyware threats and Scotty got a score of 100. WinPatrol PLUS with R.I.D. has been further optimized to provide quick real-time detection of spyware threats and infiltrations on a Microsoft Windows based PC.
See R.I.D. Results for complete details.
Less Frustration for repeating threats
Many threats come in pairs so that as soon as you remove one program another one just recreates it. The results have been repeated warnings by Scotty over and over again. WinPatrol now recognizes repeat offenders and offers alternate solutions to help users remove the stubborn infiltrations.
Buffer Overflow Security Added
WinPatrol 9.7 now uses newly developed Windows text functions provided by Microsoft to protect developers from security threats caused by hackers taking advantage of possible buffer overflow flaws.
Additional International Help Support
BillP Studios has always been devoted to doing what we can to support users in other countries who would like to use their native language. Our volunteers have been great as localizing WinPatrol text. We can now support any language including new help files as they become available.
Tested with Microsoft Windows Vista Beta 1
Scotty is very happy running on the new Vista OS from Microsoft.
