WinPatrol is a nice utility that monitors changes to key areas within Windows.
The following description come directly from the publisher's website.
WinPatrol uses a heuristic behavioral approach to detecting attacks and violations of your computing environment. Traditional security programs scan your hard drive searching for previously identified threats. WinPatrol takes snapshot of your critical system resources and alerts you to any changes that may occur without your knowledge. You'll be removing dangerous new programs while others prepare to update their definition/signiture data files.

March Madness for Windows XP

For long weekend I’m making a one systemlifetime upgradelicense toWinPatrol PLUS available for$2.00.Our full family pack lifetime license normally $49.95 can also be purchased for $10.00. Sale ends Monday night at midnight EST.
This month our stats show that 17% of visitors to WinPatrol.com are still using Windows XP. I’ve heard from many people who will not or can not upgrade at this time. Even this summer I suspect our XP visitors will still exceed 10%.
On April 8th, 2014 Microsoft will end their full support for Windows XP. Many people may say,“I never contact Microsoft for support”, they don’t realize how many security holes are discovered every week and are quickly they get patched by Microsoft via their auto updates. If not for this behind-the-scenes support you’d be vulnerable to attack just by being connected to a network.
Let me be clear, WinPatrol is not a complete solution to the security dangers coming to Windows XP. It’s an inexpensive, safe way to know if you have been attacked and will help fight off most attacks. I still recommend upgrading to a newer version of Windows but I realize it’s not an option for everyone.
Over the last month we’ve seen an increase in adoption of Windows 8.x but it’s not coming from Windows XP users.
