Kyer, if you paid $1, you paid too much.  It was only $0.99.  :D  (WinPatrol PLUS for 99 Cents and Family Pack only $9.99!)

Anyway, send an email to Support At WinPatrol.com.  Hopefully, you're still using the same email address since that will be logged in the database.  If you are no longer using that address, hopefully you and your brother remember what email address you were using four years ago.  Also, if you recall the licensed name, that would also help the database search.

It has not been the best of... decades really...  but the last two years have been especially difficult what with other family members needing major surgery.  Went from nearly doctor free to seeing the inside of a hospital's visiting room several times each year.

Now one has been diagnosed with cancer:  My dad.  It's early stage and he was normally a stubborn cuss, but he's aged something fierce the last five years.

Prayers or virtual hugs appreciated.

RIP Freedomlist:  my second 'tech forum' and it was invaluable during my dial-up years.  I think it was just a couple of months ago I went back (nostalgia) and saw that all the posts were old.  Not surprised its been laid to rest, but still a bit sad.  Nice memories.

WinPatrol Help & Information / to Mod: Lost WinPatrol upon Win10 upgrade
« Last post by ComicsLover on June 28, 2016, 10:50:36 PM »
I and my sibling purchased the Lifetime WinPatrol Plus program when it was offered at the super special of $1 awhile back--same day.

When he upgraded his computer to Windows 10 the upgrade apparently *ate* his WinPatrol and....well, he's not the best record keeper of late due to hordes of recent family issues thrust upon his shoulders.

Question:  what info would he need to send to WinPatrol in order to get his registration code?  (I should mention that he's not sure which email he used to register as he quit one or two within the past two years.  Yes.)

If it would help, we not only purchased on the same day, much of the info will be the same.  Let me know how and I'll repeat this plus my info in an email.

WinAntiRansom Help & Information / Re: WinAntiRansom Confusion

I purchased and installed WinAntiRansom on my computer and have gotten half way through the Quick Start Guide, but am still confused on the SafeZone feature as I thought the program was protecting the whole computer?

Please note that, yes, I get confused easily on most things technical.  Hence this post:

1.  Do I need to put every file or folder of docs/music/photos in the safe zone folder?  Or list them underneath?
2.  I have a file that I use when I transfer my personal 'want to safe' files enmass  to a new computer. Most of my personal files are there rather than the Microsoft paths (Documents, Music, Photos, etc.)  Lets call it ABC. This file folder has lots of subfolders in it already.  Can I place this folder into the safeguard folder and be done with it or does the "10 subfolders" include those within my ABC folder and I'll need to redo my files into only 10 subfolders?

Hello ComicsLover!

No worries on the confusion part, that could be very well our documentation - that is something that I'm working on.

The SafeZone is a place to configure locations that process / scripts can't touch unless the process / scripts are whitelisted. SafeZone supports 10 paths that can be listed as a SafeZone, so you aren't required to move your files to the default location.

If a top-level path is configured for SafeZone location (C:\FileDumpLocation\), the directories listed under that will be included into the SafeZone (C:\FileDumpLocation\ABC, C:\FileDumpLocation\XYZ).

All network drives are automatically protected, so you won't have to configure network drives into the SafeZone location.

I'm glad the picture helped because it took quite a while to find just the right picture -- and definitely worth the effort.  As to patience, not to be concerned, Mary, we all have different areas of expertise, whether they be computers, cars, cooking, or whatever.  Believe me, I wouldn't touch an electronics topic with Digerati around!!! 

Yes, it is best on Windows 7 to click the Windows "Orb"/Windows Key and select Shut Down from there.  Of course, when there is no other alternative (computer freezes), that is when you need to use the power button.

Corrine,
   Thanks for the picture it helped a lot. I did what you said & so far this seems to work. I will not shut it down with the power button any more. You have been very very patient with me. It is hard when you don't know a thing about the names of things that are on the computer. Once again thank you so much.

Digerati,
   When you don't understand the computer or anything that belongs on it that makes it very hard to ask for help. I am sorry I said  you lost me on your first sentence, what I should have said was your post was beyond anything I could comprehend. There are some people like myself who just don't get anything about the computer or how it works or does not work.
