Automate ZSoft Uninstaller "analyze"
« on: October 31, 2005, 12:43:33 pm »
I think it would be great if Zsoft could put a monitor in the background and autodetect when a installation setup .msi, .exe is being run. Then when a setup is detected it will give the user a quick popup asking if he/she wants to analyse first before proceeding with the installation.

Well, personally I hate when programs run in the background, but I'll give it some thought...

I found this software called "InstallWatch" at http://www.epsilonsquared.com/

This software has setup detection, maybe you could have a look if you're interested

I second this....for those who don't want that option, make it so that you can choose whether or not you want this monitoring in the background

What can be done for programs that have auto updates?  I don't expect to analyze Microsoft updates, but our firewalls, antispyware and AV programs sometimes install upgraded engines in addition to their signature files. 

Would you suggest altering the configuration so that the program only notifies of an update rather than automatically installs it?
In some cases, this would necessitate going to their website and manually downloading/installing the update files.

My feeling is that when it comes it security programs, further installation analysis would be too time consuming.
If we can't trust those programs, what can we trust?!   :-\

I personally don't analyze security applications. I don't want to uninstall them anyway, and as you say, it would be very time consuming to analyze every time there is an update...
