  • Tip: Change Analysis Diagnostic tool for Windows XP

    Came accross this and thought I would share

    Did you every deal with clients that say that suddenly the computer is acting weird. After pressing for more details thay say "I didn't do anything", "Just all of a sudden"....

    Well MS has come out with the Change Analysis Diagnostic tool for Windows XP.

    Direct Download from here

    After installing, reboot.
    The go to start, Run , statechangediag.exe.

    The program asks for a period date to analyze and generates an XML file your review (in IE).

    I have attached the output from one of my computers (drop the '.txt')
    Very neat

    1 1 was a racehorse.
    2 2 was 1 2.
    1 1 1 1 race 1 day,
    2 2 1 1 2

      Cool!
      I presume it can be run "after the event" rather than being installed first?

      Definitely one for the toolbox

          Yes, it compares data to information captured by system restore.
