SysTracer Portable is a system tool designed to analyze your computer for changed files, folders, registry entries, startup applications, and Windows services. It uses a feature called 'snapshot' to help users compare between older and newly modified registry folders.
This is the portable edition of SysTracer. You can save it on USB flash drives or other portable devices to have it with you all the time.
Although basic in design and functionality, SysTracer Portable does an important thing in helping users keep their system safe: it scans entire registry folders and files together with important startup apps, and then saves the snapshot to HTML or PDF files. This feature helps you later store the layout of your system before it gets corrupt and use it as a template in case your registries get modified in time.
Although looking a bit outdated, SysTracer Portable has an easy-to-guess graphical user interface. It places all major features and software mechanics in tabs in the upper part of the application's window.
There, users can click on the 'Application' tab. This tab offers them a view on what other installed tools were working in the background when the snapshot was taken, and helps them get an in-depth perspective inside the snapshot without actually having to fiddle inside the system folders themselves. Needless to say, this file can be saved and later used as a comparison in case new intrusive utilities get installed in important parts of your system.
Additionally, if you manage to take more than one snapshot, SysTracer Portable will show you the differences and will save them to HTML or REG files so you can later come back to older, unaltered registries.
The program allows remote users to scan your registry files in case your terminal is inaccessible for various reasons. All you have to do is input the listening port and specify when a remote user should contact the app installed in your computer. After that, you can hit 'Start,' and SysTracer is available to the selected remote user.
SysTracer Portable does a very simple and essential job: it keeps track of all your important registries and apps running in the background. With its 'snapshot' feature it allows users to compare different statuses of their registries and helps them decide if a return to an initial state is needed.
