I’m very lucky to have what might be considered a cult following for WinPatrol. It’s essential since we don’t advertise and depend on word of mouth to let people know they should download WinPatrol and upgrade to WinPatrol PLUS. The few people who upgrade to PLUS allow us to continue giving away a free version.
One of the positive elements of our software is that we’ve never included 3rd party crap software like toolbars in our setup program. I consider this an insult to our users and while I could make a lot of money it’s just wrong. Many of you have read about my constant battle with Ask.com(IAC) who thinks WinPatrol should include a custom version of their search toolbar.
I continue to get requests from companies who say they want to do business with me.
