I been years trying to find something as simple as a plain Folder Monitor (standalone) or other, where i might keep tabs on say Local Settings\TEMP and Windows\System32 Monidir is lacking severely and old and outdated. FileChangeAlarm i had used but needed 2 running instances of it to be of any use even though it comes close to being worthy enough to alert to Folder/File changes with audible alarms (wav files) and a pop up. Does anyone know a freeware Directory Monitor floating the internet that at least covers a few areas of Folders & guarding file changes? I'm at a lost why some developer someplace hasn't experimented with devising such a program to help keep a watch when a dropper lands or some modification is created where you can at least review what's happening in those areas to investigate. Thnaks for any finds you like to share on this.
