Neither of these solutions is ideal
Authored by: lincd0 on Jan 05, '10 08:05:59AM

If you want to know what changes an installer has made to the filesystem, you should take a snapshot before the installation and another one after, and compare the two.

There are many ways of doing this. The easiest is to use an application such as Uninstaller. A more comprehensive solution is to use Radmind, which uses checksums instead of modification dates to detect changes, and can actually revert the changes. But setting up Radmind is too difficult for most users.
