****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:

  1. Another great giveaway from another great software company. I have been using the free version for several years now. What a great opportunity for a free full version. Count me in. Thanks Jim for another great giveaway.

  2. Computers, OS’s and security programs have come and gone over the years but Scotty has always had a place in my digital world.

    This is an excellent opportunity and I thank one and all.

  3. I have heard of thisprogram and how well it plays with others without issue, so I would love to put this on my main laptop to further protect me from all the nasties out there.
    Thank you for this generous offer!

  4. WinPatrol is a powerful tool through which we can keep track of all processes that start with the launch of our computer, WinPatrol allows you to manage processes, makes it possible to detect changes in the browser’s home page, manage your cookies, set a delayed start for the selected application and detect which slows down your system. Thanks for the giveaway 😀

  5. This is a great piece of software, arounf for quite a while, but still doing the job like no
    other I’ve tried. It protects your system, keeping the user aware of any and all changes
    giving him the ability to deal with them. In addition, the program gives you the tools and
    knowhow to make the proper decision, something lacking in other programs.
    This is a great offer and I thank you.

  6. Now this is what I call a real great offer. I have used Winpatrol for years
    (free version) and to have a lifetime version would terrific. I have used it on Windows 98, 98se, XP and now 7

  7. Amen. One of the useful programs that belongs in the Computer Security Bible. I’ve had the free version for years. Now is the time to convert to Plus.
    Will try for the free lifetime version first.

  8. WinPatrol & WinPatrol Plus represent highly recommended software by the Gurus on the net and are most definitely a must have.

    Please count me in 7 Many THanks for the opportunity.

  9. Thanks Jim for the control panel shortcut. Scotty dog has been on all my networks and I’d love the chance for a upgrade.

  10. I have been using Bill Ps great software for approx 5 years on Vista and Windows7 saved my bacon on a few occasions I would love it if you would be so kind as to enter me in the draw for a copy of Bills great software thanks Dave and Bill P for the chance.

  11. Long time fan of WP, would love a lifetime license! Please throw my hat into the ring for this great giveaway.

  12. The program is very helpful and should be more advertised.
    Thank you very much for organizing the competition and wish all success.

  13. I’ve never tried Win Patrol. It certainly appears to be a very comprehensive utility for Windows. I would be very happy to accept a copy. Thanks!

  14. I (and my Scottie, Jake Boy) have been a Win Patrol user since it’s extremely early days. It has saved me innumerable times from the unwanted placemenet of programs into my start menu and is the second (the first is a browser!) program I download so I can get rid of all the crapware in a new computer. I trust the Plus info and would not have a computer without this incredibly useful program.
