WinPatrol v.19.1.2010.1 - October 29, 2010
Whats New

? Due to an increased number of illegal versions of WinPatrol being distributed on torrent and keygen sites this version has been
enhanced to make it easier for legitimate users to activate their PLUS code.
While legitimate users will have easier access, illegal users will be encouraged to upgrade.
? HiJackLog updated to show correct description for Windows 7 even thought technically it's reported as version 6.
? Setup program was fixed to turn off debug mode which created two text files which aren't needed.
