    Does any one know of some software that can dectect files added to a hard
    drive and changes made in the registory?
    I am instralling some software and I want to know what changes it makes to
    hard drive and registory so I can delete it all out manually if the unstall
    does not remove it. I have found some that scann spots but not the whole
    system, I am happy with freeware and/or trialware, I only need to due it one
    time.

    Thanks
