or installing a new software product. The changes report can be produced in text or HTML
format and contains a list of all modifications that have taken place between  snapshot1
and snapshot2.In addition, you can also specify folders (with sub filders) to be scanned
for changes as well.In version 1.60+ you can save your whole registry in a *.hiv file for
