InCtrl X: Monitor Changes to Your System
« on: April 24, 2013, 11:20 AM »
InCtrl was quite popular, but wasn't updated after version 5, so it died. "Now" (January 2012) PCMag has re-written and re-introduced InCtrl X - yes, they skipped 6, 7, 8, 9, and went straight to 10!

InCtrl X is a radical change from the previous method of capturing changes. In this version, it does real-time monitoring of a process. Instead of taking a pre and post install system snapshot and then comparing, InCtrl X watches what files and registry changes are made by the running process. So not only can you capture system changes during an installation, you can capture changes of a process currently installed and running on your system.

InCtrl features include:
• Monitor registry, file, and folder additions, deletions, and changes
• Monitor software installations, running programs, and uninstall routines
• Continue monitoring after Windows restart
• Produce reports of changes in HTML and Text format


I have not (yet) tried the program. Have you?  :tellme:
Price is $8 or $20 like every other PCMag application.

I just tried it to monitor installation of Nitro Pro 10. The first time I ran it I got a BSOD with a complaint about a registry filter exception for INCTRL64.SYS. However, I rebooted, it ran without issue, and created an excellent report of registry & file entries. I haven't used it to check completeness of uninstalls.
