  1. Program for monitoring changes

    I'm looking for a free program that will monitor the changes made to my computer after installing a new program, going on a web site, etc.

    Umm good luck - It would have to scan just about the entire hard drive to find out ALL the changes the program/website/etc made to your pc. Thats a full scan for each and every page/picture/script that a web page has. The program(program alone) part maybe out there somewhere. Good luck ;)

    I did find these two.

    FolderMon alerts you about file additions, deletions, and changes in the folders you specify.

    InCtrl5 monitors the changes made by install programs.

    The two of them will just about do the trick.

    What say you?

    Ad-watch will monitor your computer for known spyware, even while installing programs.

    I think Norton CleanSweep can log app installations too.
