What's new about Mirekusoft Install Monitor 3? +

Mirekusoft Install Monitor 3 comes packed with improvements. We've added support for Windows 10. We have updated the User Interface to be more responsive while providing more different views, more status messages, and program instant search. It's easier to find items in the different panes with quick find. Furthermore, we've improved the accuracy of program usage information. The program pane also makes easier to identify programs that can be run versus support programs and new programs that have not been run are highlighted. We've built upon the Startup Monitor to give your more control over what's running. When you exit a program disabled in Startup Monitor we automatically kill all background processes. We've added the ability to add custom exclusions to Program Cleanup.

How long will my license last? +

The license is a lifetime license for that PC and gives you access to support and all updates for that major version (e.g. 3.x). We also offer discounts for major upgrades. 

Why are certain files in the Contents pane striked-out? +

The Find Window command currently only works if Install Monitor was able to monitor the installation.

Why can’t the Find Window command find the correct program? +

When some file is deleted that was responsible for creating items during an installation, Install Monitor will keep the item but put a strike through to indicate that is deleted. This provides a history that allows you to see what files were responsible for creating different items.

How does Install Monitor help me in performing maintenance on my computer and those of my friends and family? +

Mirekusoft Install Monitor helps you by gathering all program-related information in one place, by tracking all the changes these programs have made - including registry changes - and provides full cleanup functionality that deals with all changes made to your system.
