I recently had occasion to look at the installation logs which SmartSweep (a Norton SystemWorks CleanSweep app) generated for a number of applications which I was considering uninstalling. I was somewhat disturbed by what I saw. There appears to be very many 'files added' during the installations that have nothing at all to do with the installed application--large numbers of 'cookies' and 'temporary internet files' totally unrelated to the installed application, many of which were on my system long before the installation took place. There are also files from my C:\Windows\Recent documents list and files from Microsoft Office Search Services\Indexing Services activities. But more importantly, there are files and folders from other applications, including some of the application executables included in the 'files added' list of the log. In one application I looked at for example, out of 327 files listed as 'added' only 11 appear to belong to the installed application. If these logs are an accurate guide to what files will be deleted if I use the CleanSweep uninstall feature, I'm in deep trouble. Has anybody out there encountered this problem before? I realize this may not be the appropriate forum, but I'm not sure what may have caused this, and I'm hoping that you security-conscious types may have some useful advice.
