WinPatrol lifetime $5

WinPatrol has been recommended many times here on DonationCoder.  :up:

Quote from: Bits from Bill
Our experimental sale this year begins on my wife Cindi’s 55th birthday, December 9th, so she suggested $5 was a nice round number that might make all our friends and fans happy.  Even folks using an illegal keygen versions can afford this upgrade and have a safe version of WinPatrol PLUS for life. WinPatrol has a history of being Birthdayware so you can also wish Cindi’s a Happy Birthday by upgrading this weekend.

Instead of a $29.95 upgrade to WinPatrol PLUS this weekend upgrading will only for $5. Like our everyday pricing you can use your single license on every personal computer you own and use it for your lifetime including any new versions we release.  Our Family Pack license normally $49.95 can be had for only $25.

For our friends in Europe $5 USD converts to about €3.73 so it’s even a better deal. $25 USD converts to about €18.7 at least by today’s rate.

Thx Curt!

That's a terrific deal on a very nice security app. I just hope Bill Pytlovany doesn't put himself out of business with his generosity. :'(

What exactly does this thing do? The site didn't really seem to clarify how much of what (if anything) does it scan in realtime.

It's no AV or Malware scanner.

It checks if something changed. Like autostart entries, browser toolbars, default search / start page in browser, HOSTS, file associations, scheduler entries, and so on.

It can even do more. Try the freeware version. :-)

Hi Folks,

If you do not have a lifetime WP on your puters, this is close to a no-brainer.  The startup area is very much security underrated in significance, and afaik, WinPatrol does the most complete job of patrol.  

The special is for consumer, one at a time, not a business pack (I asked).  

WinPatrol is not super-elegant in look and feel, (tabbed interface, less flexible than programs like Evgeni's Chameleon in working with things like delays and configurations) but it is extremely solid and functional and above all the competition in the security sphere.  All the competition means other startup programs and whatever is bundled with suites.

Already got, but I'd +1 it a zillion times. Probably the most useful (and best behaved!) bit of security/utility software in the known universe.

The family pack's a good deal too -- but sadly, right now, the ordering process for it is broken. :(

It's up and going now. :) For those of us who end up having to maintain every single PC in households of every family member, I'd say it was a very good choice.
