Thanks Bill for the input. I am grateful for WinPatrols existence as it saved me from a trojan once.

I no longer find it necessary to uninstall WinPatrol when updating. I merely exit WinPatrol, install the update and launch WinPatrol at finish.

All I have running is the monitor, WinPatrol.exe, located in the Wow6432Node.

C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs\WinPatrol should have one each of
  • Uninstall WinPatrol
  • WinPatrol Explorer (which requires UAC)
  • WinPatrol Help
  • WinPatrol (the monitor)
information   Information

Warning: To readers of this topic, do not edit the registry without making a backup first.


I'm wondering if you need to do a complete removal of WinPatrol, including deleting the WinPatrol folder at C:\Users\%User%\AppData\Roaming\ as well as the registry key HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\BillP Studios

Note: If you are a PLUS user, note your username and Reg Code before performing the above.

This one still added both entries under

HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run
and
HKLM\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run

When installing, but this time (unlike the one from before) when un-checking and re-checking the start with windows option on WP, it removed the one under
HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run

and left just the one under
HKLM\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run

So now it doesn't throw the uac prop up. So I'm assuming that's the proper one to only have there.

First, don't try to make any sense our of the WOW6432Node.
It's evil Microsoft plot created by the Office Team to make their 64 bit version easier to program. For our purposes it's just a mirror of what we write to the normal registry tree.

I can confirm it doesn't have anything to do with when you're getting the UAC request. I was surprised by the same message yesterday on my non 64 bit system. Unfortunately, I can't duplicate it now.

I almost have it narrowed down but what you can do if you'd like to help is this...
If you get the UAC message for WinPatrolEx again on boot up check the WinPatrol folder for a file temp.reg. You'll want to check before you reply to the UAC message because it will be deleted afterwards.

If you find the file temp.reg, let me know what it says and that should help me get rid of it.


Thanks!
Bill

Bill,

Have you received reports about the return of the missing cookies issue? There is a new thread at SC.

There is a temp.reg in Appdata/Roaming/Winpatrol that is still there, is this the one you're talking about? That's what it says -


Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run]
"WinPatrol PLUS"=-

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...
