WinPatrol Version 35.5.2017.8 Released

Recommended Posts

WinPatrol Version 35.5.2017.8 was released with several fixes to better align with Windows 10.

 

Fixes:

 

  • Fixed addition of Startup programs to be compatible with recent changes to Windows 10.
  • Fixed removal of Startup programs to be compatible with recent changes to Windows 10.
  • Disabled and removed checkbox for “Allow PLUS info data collection” because recent changes in allowed URL length resulting in no data being returned for customers.

Note: Since the new release of WinPatrol Version 35.5.2017.8 was announced, there have been reports of the wpsetup.exe being detected as a trojan. I reached out to Bret Lowry who gave me permission to share information about both the false/positives as well as problems reaching WinPatrol.com.

 

The issue with the false/positives is the same ongoing issue that Bill Pytlovany had because of using the InstallMate installer. The problems with reaching the website are due to the Internet Backbone company Level3 which has widespread outages.

 

I provided additional information in my blog post, False/Positives of WinPatrol wpsetup.exe and Access to Website.

Thanks for the heads-up Corrine. I tried to get the update, but the site times out on Chrome. ISP is ATT.COM. This happens from the Update button on the Plus tab, or from your link in the first post.
