    Mirekusoft Install Monitor: https://www.mirekusoft.com/

    Intelligent Monitoring Runs in Background
    Once installed, Mirekusoft Install Monitor runs in the background and starts monitoring program installs in real-time. It’s lightweight so it will have minimal impact on your PC.

    Mirekusoft Install Monitor watches the files added to your system by an application installation, allowing you cleanly remove the program later should you want to do so.

    To try the program out, install it, then install some other application, and Install Monitor will automatically track the files, folders and Registry keys being added to your system. There are no extra dialogs, no lengthy snapshots taken, all this happens in the background (and in our case, without us even noticing).


    You can see the results, though, by launching Install Monitor, selecting the newly-installed program and clicking the Contents button. This will display a tree of the various files, folders and Registry keys added by the program. Which actually might be useful in itself if you just want to know how a particular application has changed your PC.

    If you want to fully remove that application, though, select it, click Content > Uninstall and Install Monitor will launch the regular uninstaller. Allow that to complete and watch as the list of files and Registry keys shrinks. And if there's anything left over, click "Clean up" to remove that, too, ensuring there's no junk left behind to clutter your hard drive.

    There are a number of posts about in in the following thread.
    https://www.wilderssecurity.com/thr...e-best-i-did-a-test-on-4-uninstallers.409545/
    Even you posted a number of times in that thread. No offence intended, but why do you keep posting threads with clickbait titles?

    With regard to Install Monitor, it has some issues which have been discussed in that thread, which is why I don't use it myself. If they are fixed (the author told me he will fix some issues), then it will be an excellent installer in my opinion.

    Yes, I was there too.

    Unless TS have some new info he/she can always add to the existing thread. No need to reinvent the wheel

    Well let's start with the positive.

    I always love how you go to the limit, testing products and then responding on threads about how the software did. I think that is great.

    Now the negative.

    No it was not nor ever has been click bait....I just forgot I had posted about "That Particular" software in that previous post.

    IF it ever gets to that "Fixed/Excellent" stage. Please let me know.

    Well, if you add "The reason will shock you!" at the end the title still feels natural. :p :D
    It's just a bad title. It doesn't incorporate the name of the software.

    Privacy Statement
    It practically says: "We collect every bit of information we can and sell it, with the exception of our "customer lists". Since you've probably given us consent with accepting the TOS, we also collect sensitive personal information, such as race, religion, or political affiliations, use and sell them"
    So...sounds like any other company. Using it is not advised. Please use open-source software. :(

    It's just that your thread titles say how wonderful a program is, without even mentioning the name of the software. Your tile of your thread about Ashampoo Uninstaller said it was a new uninstaller, when it was just a new version.
    I will.
    That's not good and I admit I had never read it. If I talk to Joe again from Mirekusoft again I will question him about this. For now, I couldn't be bothered as I'm not using Install Monitor.

    QUOTE FROM AUTHOR:

    "Last time we talked about why you want to take control of your PC to improve its performance and reliability. Let’s now talk about how. Remember, software you install slows down your computer and doesn’t completely remove itself when uninstalled. These factors contribute to a sluggish and less reliable system.

    Existing solutions such as registry cleaners, uninstallers, and system optimizers don’t fully give you back control. One approach used is a scanning-based approach, which scans pre-defined locations for items known to be left by uninstalled programs. The scan is resource-intensive and takes some time. After that the user is presented with a long list of items the program believes can be removed. It is up to the user to verify whether this is indeed the case. These programs might try to fix problems that really don’t exist such as reporting issues on fresh installed systems. However, this can possibly cause other problems.

    How are software remnants slowing down the system? (Assuming a SSD with enough space left and that they are not running in the background)

    I don't know, you have to ask the developer. He sent me the quote in an email this morning

    Roger: Did you see version 4. He's changed the UI and the efficiency. I know we've talked about version 3, but what about version 4. Did he make the improvements you suggested?

    Just wondering. He sent me an upgrade offer for 24.00

    Yes, v4 is the version that has been discussed here, not v3. The UI is siginifantly better in v4 vs v3. The improvements have not been added yet. The last update to v4 was released a month ago and appeared to be a very minor update.
