Usually, people are found stuck in redundant error rectification problems while working on their Windows OS. I mean, literally, students and office employees suffer from myriads of issues when working with their PCs and they spend nearly half of their lifetime debugging them. This is not an exaggerated figure given that we usually work for 12 hours on our system and nearly half of that time is consumed debugging errors and nearly the same amount of time goes later, trying to figure out how to avoid it in future. WinPatrol is a piece of software that helps to sort out some of these issues fairly easily.
Whether it is the operating system itself or any other third party software, they always store their valuable credentials in the registry settings in a hidden location of your Windows disk. They can be beneficial, but also create problems many times. WinPatrol helps you to easily remove old and corrupted registry settings. You can also lock down your registry keys so that they are not vulnerable to unwanted changes by other potentially unwanted programs or PUPs.
The Start-Up Manager
Many issues like long starting time and occasional unresponsiveness yields due to the processes that are automatically started when the computer wakes up. With WinPatrol you can enable, disable or even remove many unwanted services from their start-up list. This also removes vulnerabilities that reappear even after you removed them from Windows Start-Up Manager. It also stops PUPs to make changes to the start-up services, their lists and avoids any modification to the settings without your authentication.
Most of the PUPs target your browsing experience by installing add-ons which reappear even after they are removed, or by installing flash content on every page you visit, or by creating pop-ups every time you open a webpage. WinPatrol takes care of your Internet Explorer and avoids any kind of corruption due to this. Additionally, its PLUS service gives you access to their database of information regarding various programs installed on your PC. This comes handy when you are not sure whether some component that you are currently considering to remove, is actually important. Thus, it helps you take informed decision by reading more about that particular stuff from their database. It gets enabled with a small PLUS Info button.
WINPATROL takes care of issues and prevents them from occurring. It safeguards you when you are not alert.
