A good program that got abandoned. That's too bad.

Old with some old artifacts and abilities lost, but still not bad as a quick lil fixup for things that heavier all-in-ones try to get you to pay for.. such as.. Startup programs, Kill task, Delay Startups, View Hosts file, Service Settings, etc. ..and the cute little barking notification when a program tries to add itself to startup.

Winpatrol used to be a great program. I bought it many years ago and never regretted the purchase. It was my "go-to" program to discover information about files on my PC.

Sadly, it seems like Ruiware, LLC, the company behind WinPatrol and other assorted programs, is no longer active. I performed some extensive "digging" and found that all activity has ceased. This includes the software website, Facebook and Twitter, and it's been that way since mid 2017. Here is an extract from the Florida Department of State: Data last refreshed on Saturday, January 19, 2019.....

It really is a shame that the WinPatrol software wasn't on-sold and supported. I'd like to give it 5 stars but because it is "dead" I can only give it 1 star.
