The Change Analysis Diagnostic simplifies the identification of recent changes to computers running Windows XP. The diagnostic checks for recent changes to the following:

  • Operating system components, such as patches, that are installed as hotfixes or downloads from Windows Update.
  • Installed application entries listed in the Add or Remove Programs control panel.
  • All kernel mode device and file system drivers.
  • Browser helper objects loaded by Internet Explorer.
  • ActiveX controls loaded by Internet Explorer.
  • Programs loaded automatically during Windows XP startup.
  • Programs and Dynamic Link Libraries (DLLs) loaded when an application starts.

After you install this item, you may have to restart your computer.

I don't really have a preference either way really, I just have always disabled it. I don't use it at home, my company disables it by default, so I was just making an observation that it has to be enabled for this tool to work is all.

I've never seen system restore do anything other than be a safe haven for viruses/malware or completely hose a system when used. Nothing like rolling back the registry a few months and see what happens.

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
