[REVIEW] Softpedia: WinPatrol 'Scotty'
« Reply #1 on: October 17, 2011, 10:53:19 AM »
The Truth

All in all, Scotty does a good job. It will definitely bark upon any change and let you decide if the process gets through or not. It will not affect the computer in any way and performance will be the same as ever. Computer resources are barely touched (30MB of RAM is not that much).

It is definitely a must for your computer. Just install it and that's it. Each time something is to be changed, a short bark will let you know and a window will pop up asking for permission for the process or denying it.

Note: this review is dated and concerns an old Winpatrol version. However current (improved!) Winpatrol version is provided with similar good test results.

Smokey's Security Forums highly recommend Winpatrol.
