Hi

Is there some free utility which can be installed on Xp pro PC and then it
detects whenever any application tries to modify windows registery ?

I mean, I keep my system well protected having latest updates of firewalls
and latest spyware removal utilities, but even then somehow, some spyware
usually creeps in within hours of me being online. And worse thing is that
even the latest spyware products dont seem to remove these spywares. Then, I
usually have to search every possible place in registery and remove the
unwanted entries and then I have to search System32 and Windows directory for
new entries and remove from it as well.

But it usually takes hours for me to do that because going through windows
registery manually is a BIG pain. Can anybody suggest me somekind of
mechanism whereby I could be notified of change in registery made by any
application whether legitimate or not and it asks me for permission to modify
registery.

I hope, I make myself clear. I hope, somebody would have solution for this
already.

You can use InCtrl5 to track changes on your HDD and Registry while you
install a software. This utility scans your HDD and registry before the
install , after the install
and compares the results. After the install is finished you get a report
with all the changes that the install done to your system.

The way to keep spyware off your computer is to 'think before you click'. If
you download "free" programs, respond to advertisements, fail to read the
EULA before installing software and otherwise do not practice safe
computing, the finest software in the world will not protect you.
