I am cleaning the spyware/adware out of a computer for a medical company.

One of the key programs that they use is a very sensitive, old, out of date, and unstable data entry program which appears to be built off of something similar to Access. They are in the process of having this program replaced, but it will take some time before the new software is ready.

I wanted to track the files that this program accesses/uses during its startup/operation, so when I run the various cleaning programs (i.e. SpyBot, AdAware, ect.) I can make sure that they do not find/remove files that are relevant to the operation of this software.

Is there a good program to use for tracing specific file usage by a specific program, or is this something I will have to trace through windows logs?
