Security Software Programs / WinPatrol after Win8 to 8.1 update
« on: September 08, 2014, 02:16:04 PM »
Not a big deal, but something to watch out for....

I had been using Windows 8, with Classic Shell.
Winpatrol Plus was one of the startup programs.

After I took advantage of the free upgrade to Windows 8.1, I noticed some unwanted changes in the contents of the Classic Shell start menu... some duplication of Windows utilities that I had moved around in the menu, and one game was missing.... Easy to fix.. no problem..

Also...My primary Windows login account had somehow been hijacked by my Hotmail account. I took a while to figure it out, but it turned out to be easily fixed...

BUT
What I didn't notice at first, because it had been in the taskbar's "hidden icons".
Winpatrol Monitor was no longer a "startup program".
Again, easy enough to fix, but a week had passed before I noticed.

BTW: If Winpatrol hadn't been discussed so much on this forum, and (to a lesser extent) on FreedomList, it may have taken much longer to notice.

Wheelie bin design does not meet local "bear proof" standards, but it might serve for recycling paper.

The pan was so dirty, that after an hour of scouring, I just tossed it in the garbage.

Thanks...
I've been a "lurker" for a while, but it took me a while to find a "Capcha", I could decipher, and a username that wasn't taken.

BTW: There may be a minor bug in the signup process.
The first time I tried to join, I did not use a "!" in my username, it accepted my submission, but I never got the confirmation email.
Turns out, the username was already in use. The original "Pete" may have got the email.
