Windows System State Analyzer

Windows System State Analyzer utility compares two snapshots of a systems taken at different points in time allowing you can compare drives, registry keys, services or drivers. This is a great utility for auditing installation programs, reverse engineering, creating portable applications or malware analysis.

Upon launching the application you a presented with a two pane interface which will allow you to select what you want to take a snapshot of. I think having predefined names like Pre Install and Post Install is a nice touch.

Once the comparing is complete you are able to view the output within the application showing a before and after of the components you had selected for comparison.

The application also allows you to export a Detailed comparison report as a simple html file.

This tool is part of the Server Logo Program Certification Tool and can be downloaded from the following locations

Note: You must have the .NET Framework 2.0 installed for Windows System State Analyzer to work correctly.
