Startup Monitor is a small utility that runs transparently, and notifies you when any program registers itself to run at system startup. This freeware prevents those utterly useless tray applications from registering themselves behind your back, and it acts as a security tool against stuff like Netbus.
This tool handles problem programs that are automatically launched at startup by listing them and letting you disable, enable, or delete them. (You can save the list of programs that are currently enabled or disabled as a profile that can be restored at a later time.)
Every time you install a new program, you make a leap of faith that it will work correctly. The installation utility adds some files to your system, replaces other files, and changes elements of the Registry and essential INI files. Hopefully, it will make those changes cleanly and correctly and will record them for use by the program's uninstall utility. However, if it doesn't, this program can provide a record of exactly what the install program did.
This program (freeware) is a low-level realtime registry monitor and protector, that adds another dimension to Windows security and intrusion detection. By monitoring important locations and keys in the Windows system registry, RegistryProt will alert whenever a key is added or modified. You then have the option of accepting the key change, reverting back to the original key setting, or deleting the key.
This tool can help you analyze changes that have been made to the Windows system registry.
