    Basically, I was wondering if there was a program out there (for Windows 7) that would monitor the Windows directory and periodically hash check important system files for changes by malicious software.

    I think that Online Armor's File&Folder Protection can do the job.

    Tiny Watcher. Just add the directories you would like to watch and run it periodically. You can set it to run when you want. If anything changes it will show in the list. If nothing changes the list will not have any entries.

    Seems a interesting option to help be assure that light virtualization software wasn't bypassed.

    you can search Wilders for Tiny Watcher.

    i think it was Bellgamin who had a few tips on its use.

    Yeah, I'll have to agree with previous posters. Tiny Watcher is definitely the way to go.

    Works great on Win 7. I put together a list of areas that Winpatrol watched in its x64 list and compiled it over to a TW list.
