[REVIEW] Scotty helps Windows to be safe against lurking perils

Go online and in a very short while you would be ending up piling up a lot of rubbish on your Windows system not excluding dangerous goods like Trojans, Spyware, Bots and keep adding to the list from the lexical spectrum. I think sometime back we were discussing about WinPatrol as a tool introduction.

Today, I found my system too be crawling and just thought I would use WinPatrol. The moment I installed it and ran, Scotty terrified all the evil applications, which we kicked from the startup. The most ugly programs I hate are those related to Adobe Updater. I think that should be one of the most sick program set designed without any performance consideration in its design and architecture.

There is another feature called Delayed Startup wherein the programs are prevented from starting immediately on Windows startup, which would compete for CPU time and thus presenting a bottleneck.

Taking it still further, WinPatrol also keeps monitoring your Internet Explorer and HOSTS file which are more common vulnerabilities that are targetted by malware applications.

We would hence recommend at least WinPatrol installation for every desktop and the cute little Scotty (watchdog) to sit near the system tray and bark and bite at the perils that threaten the integrity of the system.
