Alternatives to WinPatrol

Postby MrG » Sat Apr 11, 2009 8:11 am

I just tried installing WinPatrol but it keep getting blocked by Ad-Aware :?

Is this a known problem? Is there an alternative?

Get it here:
http://www.filehippo.com/download_winpatrol/

and a new version of Ad-Aware:

uninstall your current ad-aware, install winpatrol, then ad-aware and see if it still does this. If it does, report to lavasoft about the issue.
We hate rut, but we fear change.

Unblocking WinPatrol

Postby BillPStudios » Sat Apr 11, 2009 6:37 pm

There's a helpful post that explains how to create an Ad-watch rule so Adaware no longer blocks WinPatrol from startup.
Thanks to Security Garden for the tip.

Sorry as a newbie here I can't post a link but if you send a note to support at winpatrol dot com I'll send it to you.

I worked out how to tell Ad-Aware to ignore the WinPatrol "false positive". But I think Ad-Adware should have the rule within its database so the end user doesn't have to fiddle with it.

Thanks to you both.

AnVir Task Manager

Postby alien09 » Thu Oct 29, 2009 3:30 am

Have a look at AnVir Task Manager. It manages startup programs and active processes, removes spyware. It shows full information about each process including command line, inbound and outbound traffic, disk load, tray icon, performance graph, internet connections. AnVir Task Manager makes XP or Vista much handier.
Let’s discuss this Manager here.
