    InstallSpy

    Anyone knows or uses this program?

    This is not spyware, but a program to help you discover spyware! Track any and all changes to the registry and file system, and also record all shell notification events (e.g. media inserted), when a program is installed, uninstalled, or run. This can warn you of programs trying to install new services, programs that are set to run on reboot, changes to your home page, etc. It's a highly configurable program that allows you to catch any change to your system. Filtering lets you zoom down to the details that are most important to you.

    Hey Gerardwil, it's been awhile! :D

    It looks pretty useful if the claims aren't hyped. It's listed at MajorGeek's, WinSite, GPick, WebAttack, LockerGnome,
    and Tucows....sort of a "Total Uninstall" type program. I located a tutorial that includes a configuration page.
    It's dated 2003 but for the current version. Have a peek!

    Thanks for the link GF.
    Looks as if a handy tool and for what it is doing I think it isn't that important when dated november 2003.
    Cheers,

    Gerard
