    came upon this a moment ago...have never used or tested this program so do so at your own risk .

    This program is intended to track changes made to the system by setup programs. If you perform the installation of a program, you won't know if the setup will copy some files(i.e. DLL, VBX ) to your Windows (Tm) or Windows\system directory. The amount of space required by Windows directories will enlarge, and if a specific uninstall program is not provided, you won't know what files could be safely deleted from Windows. Running Look@win 3.53, after a program installation setup, will compare the actual status of Windows system with the recorded previous one, detecting changes. Inizialization files and Registry file control provides a sort of anti-virus function,too: if any difference will be detected, the new lines in .ini files or Windows Registry will be displayed, thus alerting for changes made by viral programs in order perform malicious actions at system startup. Moreover detection of size changes of executable files in Windows directories adds possibilities of early discovering a viral attack to your system
