When I install something, I would like to know what changes it has made to my computer.  What registry entries did it make, did it install .dll files, what about my AppData folder?  Is there a program that can give me a report of changes like this?

 

Thanks!

Thanks.  I downloaded it and will try it tonight.

From it's description. “Here are some key features of “ZSoft Uninstaller”:

· Analyze an installation so it can be completely uninstalled”

 

Sound like what I need!  Thanks!

You can also try What Changed – a portable application. http://www.pendriveapps.com/program-installation-monitor-what-changed.

Ashampoo Uninstaller 4 takes a record of registry AND file structure before and after installation. It creates a log file of the differences which can be accessed, or compared with another installation log file.
You can buy Uninstaller 4 for $16.99 or £11.89 until Jan 11, 2011 on http://www.ashampoo.com/uk/gbp using the code:
happy2011
after then the price is $49.99/£34.99 with up to 40 days free trial.
I’ve been using it for several months with no problem except watch out for the enevitable task bar and if you give them a permanent email address be prepared for spamlike quantities of offers – that’s how I got the above code!
The previous version 3 is sometimes (not currently) available for free.
New year greetings and thanks to Ashraf and all the other contributors,

Revo Uninstaller Pro also creates before and after snapshots and logs of the changes.
