WinPatrol v32.0.2014 From Ruiware Released!

WinPatrol Scotty

Through the combined efforts of Bill Pytlovany and Bret Lowry, version 32.0.2014 has been released.  As WinPatrol fans know, Bill will be consulting with Bret in the transition.  (More about Bret in my earlier post here.)

An important take-away from the information provided on the update at WinPatrol v32.0 from Ruiware is the included notice of Bret's commitment to everyone using WinPatrol both that the free version will continue and also that purchases of WinPatrol PLUS continues to be a lifetime license.

New Start Menu and System Tray Icons

After considerable discussion about the changes to the Scotty system tray icon, the following changes have been made:
  • The Scotty system tray icon now has Scotty on a green background.
  • When a scan for changes is in progress, the icon will have a yellow background
  • If a notification is generated, the icon will remain yellow until the change is accepted or rejected.
  • The Blue Orb will be used by the installer, wpsetup.exe. 
For anyone with a Start Menu, the tile icons will also change:  WinPatrol(Green), WinPatrol Explorer(Blue), Uninstall(Purple) and Help(Yellow).

Pale Moon

The problem of detecting Pale Moon cookies on computers where Firefox was not installed has been corrected.  If WinPatrol finds that Pale Moon has been installed it will include the Mozilla option for setting up cookie filters. 

Safe Update Version Info

The Safe Update button will now include version information for security programs Malwarebytes Anti-Malware and Microsoft Security Essentials when installed.

WinPatrol runs on Windows XP, Windows Vista, Windows 7 and Windows 8 systems, including x64 versions.

Remember - "A day without laughter is a day wasted."
May the wind sing to you and the sun rise in your heart...
