    By reading PCWorld and one of the threads on this site, I came across a program called: "WinPatrolPlus". From what I have
    read etc. it sound like a gem. I know that there is a fee of
    $19.95 which I don't mind paying IF the program is worthwhile.
    Any input will be most appreciated...... missfuffy

    I can tell you I've had it for several months and find it most useful. I started with the free version, but then went to the Pro for more features.

    Interesting, when I got it, it was $14.95 but when I checked their website it was $19.95. But, thanks to you, I can update my v 5.2.0.3 to the new v 6.0. It comes with lifetime upgrades.

    If you do not have a utility monitoring your registry, this one will do that too. Thus, anytime a new application, wanted or unwanted tries to place itself there, you will know ahead of time.

    The information provided is useful in identifing just what is going on with your computer.

    How did I do? :)

    Hi BILLC, It seems we have a lot in common: you live in Atlanta, I live in Hendersonville. You are a computer guru and I am trying to get answers to some critical questions.

    Greetings from Atlanta.

    I hope you like WinPatrol. I just d/l the upgrade and they have added some nice features. I would not have known to look if it were not for you. There is no auto-update.

    About the "clipart"... once you have 100 posts, and you do, you can add your own. Go to User Panel > Edit Options > look for "change Avatar" at the bottom of the page. Cliick on that and you can d/l from your computer files what you want. I think it must be 50x50 pixels or smaller. Does that tell you what you need to know?

    BTW, you can do a Google search on Avartars or Icons and find gilzillions of them. :)
