    Sorry, my initial post mentionned mistaken Registry cleaner. I meant
    Installer Cleaner.

    Installer Cleaner is a neat tool when the standard uninstall process fails.

    I am wondering if there is a way to track changes made to the registry
    while removing a given entry with this Installer Cleaner?

    If you mean the windows installer cleanup utility, read the caveats before
    using the tool; which in any case only removes the installer entries, and
    not the actual program

    I have been using it for years, but would like to know more about what
    which particular entries it removes.

    The idea being, I'd like to be able to remove a given entry, install a
    new program and then restore the removed entries. This can be useful to
    troubleshoot installations.

    Ideally, I would like to have a long of what it does when it removes a
    specific entry.
