Monitor Changes To Your System With Tiny Watcher
By on October 22nd, 2009

Tiny Watcher is a free utility which takes a snapshot of crucial areas of your system and alerts you if something has been changed. It creates a snapshot of running processes, start-up registry keys, services registry keys, scheduled tasks, system directories and other sensitive registry keys.

Tiny Watcher is designed to function without getting in your way. It automatically scans your system for changes on start-up and can also be run on demand. Although the report generated by Tiny Watcher is comprehensive, it provides very little usable information about each entry. Hence, it is entirely up to the user to determine whether the changes are innocuous or malicious. Tiny Watcher is primarily a monitoring tool, however the option to delete or even permanently disable certain items is also available.

Techie Buzz Verdict

Tiny Watcher is a useful utility for monitoring changes made by dubious applications. It’s not something meant for novice users. While it is a good choice if you want a simplistic solution, there are other better alternatives (like Winpatrol).
