Windows 7: Where is Win Patrol?

Where is Win Patrol?

What has happened to Win Patrol?

I have the Plus version, but it has been sold to a different vendor. I can't find the Vendor's site and the link in Win Patrol Plus is to the original owner. I can't find the new owner's site (and if there are any updates).

Sad for a program that was supported and worked well.

As far as I can see www.winpatrol.com is owned and run by the new owners - the CNET download links back to it and was updated recently.

I go to the winpatrol.com and all I get is a message about welcome to your new server. But no links to anything.

Clear your browser cache and try again - I get links to the downloads, including WinPatrolToGo (which could be handy for me!). It works fine here

Jack, if nothing else, you can always get it from Filehippo.

I cleared the cache, history, etc in Firefox using CCleaner. With Firefox I still only get an intro page but nothing else? I also cleared the cache using the Firefox procedure.

I have the latest version (which links to the defunct BillP site), just can't access the new site, other than the initial screen.

Update, I tried to access the site with Win 8 this morning (I normally use Win 7). Same thing on both I.E.11 and Firefox.
AND I tried accessing with my iPad and the exact same thing.

Only thing I can think of is my ISP (Brighthouse/Roadrunner)???

Possibly - If you ping www.winpatrol.com what IP do you get? (23.229.142.65 here)

Looks to me as if your DNS isn't updating properly - that IP belongs to Verio hosting.
Just in case, close all browsers, then open an Elevated Command Prompt, and run the following command...

IPCONFIG /FLUSHDNS

close the window and reboot (to be on the safe side) then try again.
If you still get the same response it could well be a bad DNS Server at your ISP and you may want to contact them about it.
