Random Pagan Verse:
I know a tenth:
if troublesome ghosts
Ride the rafters aloft,
I can work it so they wander astray,
Unable to find their forms,
Unable to find their homes.

How to Monitor and Track All System Change in Windows on your PC
« on: September 30, 2015, 11:38:19 PM »

Windows System State Monitor is an application is capable of keeping an eye on certain areas of your computer, such as the file system, registries, services, and drivers. Once monitoring is started, changes are detected, so you can take action and prevent any suspicious programs from infiltrating your PC.

Windows System State Monitor

The first thing you need to do is go grab the application for the right architecture. Don?t get fooled by the name, because the component of interest is inside the bundle. You can find the download links below.

--> Server Logo Program Software Certification Tool x86 <--
--> Server Logo Program Software Certification Tool x64 <--
Once installed, look for the Windows System State Monitor executable and launch it. A small window needs to appear, showing computer and user name, the operating system (and yes, it works with Windows 10 too), as well as current date/time.

Depending on what you want to monitor, several areas can be selected. As mentioned above, a simple mouse click is enough to check or remove them from the list. When you?re ready, hit the Start Monitoring button.

All that?s left to do now is minimize the application and go on with whatever it is you were doing. Every change in the selected areas is tracked until you decide to Stop Monitoring. In the end, there?s the possibility of pressing Create Report, with various logs and an HTML file saved to a custom location.

Note that every change to your computer in the monitoring interval is tracked, so it?s best to only focus on a single task if you?re really looking to catch specific changes to your system.

Windows System State Analyzer

But wait, there?s more! The package also deploys a Windows System State Analyzer component, which is used in the same regard, but this one is for the long shot. In other words, the analyzer is used to compare two snapshots taken at different times.
If you don?t already have a snapshot of your computer, and you probably don?t, the first step is to take one. Don?t just rush to press the Start button unless you want the whole system to be analyzed, which can take a considerable amount of time.

Access the Tools menu to go to Options. There, remove the right panel items you don?t want to be scanned, or add those you want from the left panel. Hit Apply and OK to confirm. Back in the main window, there?s the possibility of choosing a Snapshot Name for easy identification, and it can be Pre install, Post install, Pre configuration, Post configuration, Post primary functionality, Uninstall, or even Custom.

Press the Start button so the snapshot is taken. Then, perform all operations you need, and take another snapshot with the same options. When you have the two BIN files, load one in each of the two panels of the System State Analyzer main window, and hit Compare. Once the application processes your request, and saves the log file, it?s automatically opened in your default viewer.
