System Monitor/Logger

4 posts in this topic

I'm looking for a way of logging PC activity on my family PC.

We have an XP PC with 4 user accounts. I've just rebuilt the machine after it started crashing alot.

I have no way of knowing what application is causing the problem.

What I'd like to do is have a script (exe) that starts when the computer starts and logs any and all Add/Update/Delete actions like

Date - Application.exe created file in c:/here/here/filename.xxx

Date - DifferentApp.exe update file at c:/overthere/filename.xx

Date - AnyantherApp.exe deleted file from c:/here/here/filename.xxx

I'd also like to know if Application changed registry

Has anyone done anything like this?

Example?

Thanks

Steve

I think the problem is a driver but I don't know which application/hardware is installing the driver or using it.

I could be wrong but I believe this is far beyond the capability of AutoScript.

It is possible, However it wouldn't be able to log all of that.

Your best bet, is to check the Event Logs and see if windows left the name of the offending program there.

Also, Logging every registry change that a program makes is not going to be very helpful, The registry is read / Written to rather a fair bit.

Download Regmon and have a look if you must.
