****DCT Exclusive****

DCT is proud to announce that, courtesy of BillP Studios, we have 5 LIFETIME licenses for the legendary WinPatrol Plus to give away to our subscribers. The licenses would normally sell for $29.95usd but you now have a chance to win one completely free by simply submitting a reply to this article…Thank you Bill!!

There are not too many products which deserve endorsements such as ‘legendary’ and ‘venerable’, but for WinPatrol those accolades are entirely appropriate. WinPatrol has been part of my staple security setup for so long I can’t even remember when I first started using it, it is one of the ‘must have’ programs of all time.

WinPatrol is the trailblazer in employing heuristics (behavioral) based protection, the innovator in its field and yet still remains remarkably light on resources. Which makes WinPatrol the perfect partner to augment traditional definition based anti-virus software and provide that extra layer of protection. I’ll quote from the WinPatrol home page because, quite frankly, I could not put it more accurately nor succinctly than Bill himself:

You don’t have to be doing anything wrong on the Internet to become a casualty of malware. WinPatrol takes snapshot of your critical system resources and alerts you to any changes that may occur without your knowledge. WinPatrol was the pioneer in using a heuristic behavioral approach to detecting Zero-Day attacks and violations of your computing environment. WinPatrol continues to be the most powerful system monitor with a small memory footprint so you won’t even know it’s running.

WinPatrol’s easy tabbed interface allows you to explore deep inside your computer without having to be a computer expert. A one-time investment in WinPatrol PLUS provides a unique experience you won’t find in any other software. WinPatrol works and plays well with others so it will complement any popular AntiVirus program scanner you currently use. The difference is you’ll never have to pay ever again for our PLUS enhancement.

In addition to the monitoring, of course, is WinPatrol’s outstanding management console which provides a means for users to easily identify and control startup items and running processes:


At a mere $29.95 one-off payment WinPatrol already represents outstanding value, now you have a chance to win a lifetime license absolutely free:

  2. Hello Jim,
    first and foremost thank you for this contest.
    Winpatrol is a gem of software and Bill Pytlovany is one of my ‘heroes’.

Thanks Jim and BillP Studios for the fabulous and ever reliable WinPatrol Plus aka Scotty giveaway.I’m using the free version but the I would love to win a license for Real-time monitoring which will benefit me in case of some hijack or unwanted object like persistent/ super cookie and spywares,etc. trying to install on the PC.Also the getting data regarding particular files from PLUS info database is quite handy.


  4. Thanks for the nice contest. Please count me in. WinPatrol is great anti-malware app. Would like to win the Plus version.

  5. I use this program for some time, but it is a free version, and is a little truncated.
    Therefore I would like to use it in the full version that is not restricted.

    So much I asked for Count Me. I’ll be pleasantly surprised because of this.
