 Security WinPatrol - time to get an updated copy
Website - Freeware
    Scotty's Home  Scotty the Windows Watchdog 
Here Scotty! It's time to get the latest version of WinPatrol. I always make sure my copy is up to date and running to protect my PC from spyware and other bad stuff. See my older review of WinPatrol. Don't be afraid, Scotty's bark is not as bad as a spyware infection.

Quote from the website -  Scotty the Windows Watch Dog sniffs out malicious "mysteryware" , web attacks and parasites that may assault your computer. WinPatrol puts you back in control of your computer so you'll know what programs are and should be running at all times. WinPatrol uses a heuristic approach to detecting attacks and violations of your computing environment. Traditional security programs scan your hard drive searching for previously identified threats. WinPatrol takes snapshot of your critical system resources and alerts you to any changes that may occur without your knowledge. You'll be removing dangerous new programs while others download new reference files.
