Anti Virus & Security
Winpooch is a Windows watchdog. By adding this free watchdog, you increase the safety of your anti-virus. It detects spyware and trojans as soon as they are installed in you computer.
The Windows watchdog scans system directories and the registry in real time, and uses very few process resources. After being attacked by some vicious programs such as a trojan or spyware, the idea to develop a kind of anti-furtive-attack raised. The problem with that kind of virus is to detect "that it has attacked the machine". Some nice firewall or virus protection programs are efficient, but there are not always free.
So here is a nice and simple watchdog that will take care of your machine´s system. Winpooch only scans some specific directories and registry key. The team is adding features thanks to some users requests.
This program will scan your computer for all loaded applications, and has an advanced Integrity Checker that will validate your System files. This program is very simple and easy to use, and if used correctly, you should be able to pinpoint and terminate malicious viruses, before they cause serious damage.
