Winpatrol False Positive...

Recommended Posts

Hi there.

 

Bill Pytlovany, the maker of Winpatrol, just did an interesting blog entry about false positives. In it he describes how CCleaner removes a file that is needed by Winpatrol to rollback changes made. If one of the developers could look at his blog and his report, that would be most helpful.

While I?m honored to be included, WinPatrol users will want to uncheck this box. The history.txt file is an important file you won?t want deleted. The history.txt file stores a lists of actions you took using WinPatrol. If for some reason you want to recover a change you?ve made it won?t be possible without the history file. If at sometime you want to clean up this file WinPatrol already provides a button to initialize it.

 

I?m hoping to contact someone at Piriform so I can let them know what might be useful to clean without hurting WinPatrol.
