NANY 2020 - KeepWatch system monitor
« on: December 26, 2019, 08:10 PM »
NANY 2020 Entry Information

Application Name:KeepWatch
Version:1.0
Short Description:System and File Monitor: basic stats,  file changes details and malware alerter
Web Page:http://s355751075.on...ehome.us/keep-watch/
Program Download Link:http://s355751075.on.../Setup-KeepWatch.exe
System Requirements:Windows 7 or later.
Source Language:Compiled AutoHotkey script
Author:mat2016

Description:

KeepWatch displays standard statistics: CPU Busy %, CPU Processes, RAM, Swap Memory, Fixed and Removable Drives, Disk Read/Write. It can be set to monitor your local weather. It also monitors every drive in your system for file read/write/delete activity. If it detects a large number of file changes per minute, it will display a message and optionally send users an email or a text message. If the user is going to be away for a while, they can set the program to Away mode and in additional to sending an email it will shutdown the computer.

Users can add filters for all the normal types of file activities. Folders/files can be excluded from setting off alerts. More information is available on the program's web page.
Important: Users should click Pause before ejecting Removable media.

In order to keep track of new file extensions, the program will scan the C drive and create a list of existing unique extensions. This will take a few minutes and is a one time operation.

Since the program needs a little more work, I have a password on the installer. It is [email protected].

Many more screen shots are on the web page.

I haven't read it. I just compared the screenshot with something I wrote over 6 years ago in AHK.

KeepWatch.exe returns for me "Not compatible with your version of windows". Does this program only work with 64bit OS.

jNizM - yes, your script from a few years back forms the skeleton for this one. I have this acknowledgement in the source code. I added the file watcher stats, internet status, ports, etc. And I make lots more areas clickable. And buttons at the bottom. The basic premise is to have general stats and watch for new processes, startup items, ransomware activity. The program can auto shutdown, send email alerts via SwithMail. You had such a nicely formatted layout it was hard to beat. I will add an About box soon and make sure to credit you.
