Is there a log for changes software does to the system?

    I kinda would like to know when things want to 'optimize' my system, what exactly it's doing. i.e. with Wise Registry Cleaner, I was poking around in it and looked at the System Tuneup tab out of curiousity:

    Is there a place I can go to see a log of what the program changed if I happened to go thru with 'optimizing'? Kinda like a logcat for android sorta perhaps?

    Only developers of these programs can answer your question.

    This will help
    https://www.nirsoft.net/utils/registry_changes_view.html

    But you need to commit the changes to find out.
    Take a backup of your OS first so you can recover if you dont like the result.
    Alternatively, clone your OS to another drive and apply it to that.

    Ok yeah I downloaded it and tried it out, seems like logcat of a sort, way too much data for me to try and sift through ;p I'll just hit up the software developers and ask them for more detail on their 'system tuneup'

    I tried googling info on that program w/o any results if you find info post back.
    I think Nirsoft reg change would be best, though never used it.

    With ProcessMon you would have to open it, stop capture, clear window, set include process name (using filter options), then look for events regsetValue.
    So you are running capture for just a few seconds while you toggle a setting. That should show only what that process has altered in reg.
    But yeah this is a long way finding what its doing with each option, would take a while to do.
