Mirekusoft Install Monitor 2.0.300.0
Fully uninstall applications, without leaving stray files or Registry keys behind

Mirekusoft Install Monitor watches the files added to your system by an application installation, allowing you cleanly remove the program later should you want to do so.

To try the program out, install it, then install some other application, and Install Monitor will automatically track the files, folders and Registry keys being added to your system. There are no extra dialogs, no lengthy snapshots taken, all this happens in the background (and in our case, without us even noticing).

You can see the results, though, by launching Install Monitor, selecting the newly-installed program and clicking the Contents button. This will display a tree of the various files, folders and Registry keys added by the program. Which actually might be useful in itself if you just want to know how a particular application has changed your PC.

If you want to fully remove that application, though, select it, click Content > Uninstall and Install Monitor will launch the regular uninstaller. Allow that to complete and watch as the list of files and Registry keys shrinks. And if there's anything left over, click "Clean up" to remove that, too, ensuring there's no junk left behind to clutter your hard drive.

In our tests this seemed to work very well, but as the "Clean up" dialog warns, "serious problems might occur" if the wrong items are removed. We wouldn't recommend you use this kind of tool unless you have a complete and recent system backup to hand.

Verdict:

An interesting and capable "clean uninstall" tool which seems very easy to use

Spotlight: Free Full Software

Windows 10 October 2018 Update (build 1809)

Free Full Commercial Software

This is the latest version of Windows October 2018 Update. it's a media creation tool that can be used to upgrade an existing installation of Windows or create installation media for another PC. Just make your choice after launching the tool and it'll do the rest.

What was new in Windows 10, when it was released? The OS brought back the Start Menu, though with a Windows 8 twist: live tiles keep you up-to-date with the latest news while also providing an easy way to launch apps. (Don't worry if you prefer the Start Screen, it's still there and you can boot into it if you prefer.)

Apps now work much more like regular desktop programs. They have minimise, maximise, restore and close buttons, and can be resized (to a degree) and organised however you like.

If you've still lost track of a program in the mass of open windows, a new Task Spaces feature can help. Click its taskbar button and you'll see thumbnails for everything running now, a little like OS X's Mission Control - just click something to switch to it.

Better still, Task Spaces also supports virtual desktops. Add extra desktops as required and it'll display thumbnails of each one, making it easy to identify whatever you're after and switch to it.

There's also smarter snapping, new customisation options, and even a bunch of experimental additions to the command prompt.

Fall Creators Update brings a whole host of new features for Windows 10. See the Microsoft Blog for more information.

The Windows 10 ISO here will give you build 1809 which is the October 2018 Update.
