WinPatrol v28.0.2013 Released

WinPatrol 2013

The release of WinPatrol 28 includes additions requested by users of WinPatrol.  Of particular interest are the WinPatrol Maintenance and Reset Tools, accessible from the "Reset" link on the Plus tab.  The tool to solve the issue of more than one Scotty icon in the System Tray is likely to be very popular.

My favorite addition is the Plus Info search box added to the Plus tab.  There have been occasions when helping others that I would have found this very useful.

The addition of Automatic (Delayed Start) for Windows Services will serve to speed start-up time for automatic services that can be delayed during the boot up operation.

From the Services tab, sort by Company name.  Any Microsoft services that can be delayed, will have the new option available in WinPatrol.  Merely click the service to select it and then click Info.
