Windows 7: Winpatrol Plus Questions

Let's try leaving WinPatrol set to start with Windows for a while and see what happens. Generally, on an "established" computer, there are not a lot of notifications, unless the type of person who regularly installs everything new that comes along.

If you do not receive expected notifications with WinPatrol set to start with Windows (i.e., new programs added to start-up, Microsoft Office SP update, etc.), I suggest completely uninstalling WinPatrol as described in my tutorial, Completely Uninstall and Reinstall WinPatrol and then reinstalling it, leaving the default settings for a bit to see what happens.

Will do, thanks Corrine! Last and final question, should I receive any warning from WPP when updating existing software like CCleaner, Google Chrome, Auslogics Defrag, MBAM and SlimDrivers? To be clear, these programs are all already on my machine, and I'm only refering to an "over the top" update..............THANKS AGAIN!

No, you should not expect a warning from WinPatrol when updating that software unless the software changes to the extent that it adds and ActiveX control, browser hijack, etc.

Thanks so much for your time and effort Corrine, it is very much appreciated!!

Winpatrol and UAC
Once again the dreaded UAC problem. I can't stop WinPatrolEx always asks for permission to run unless I turn off UAC. As UAC seems to be global I, how do I get rid of the UAC 'nag' for a specific program? Clearly its whole object is defeated if I turn it off globally so is it really any use?. I've...
