http://www.winpatrol.com/ I've wondered why someone didn't do this long ago. I'm no computer genius, but as I understand it this program works as a registry 'guard dog' telling you each time a program wants to do a suspect activity, and suspending it until you approve. It sort of pre-empts spyware with this feature. Most spyware programs only scan, this is like building a brick wall. I think it is a good idea, any thoughts from the techies?
