Desktop Armor watches dozens and dozens of important settings on your computer and warns you if any program has changed them.

Plus Desktop Armor includes a lot of other useful features like a Popup blocker and more!
Desktop Armor watches your computer for changes, immediately notifying you when a change is made to confirm you want to keep or reject the change. This saves you from lots of headaches. (A "Computer Setting Firewall" is an excellent description.)

In my testing, installing America Online's latest software adds 2 programs to run every time Windows starts, adds 5 icons on your desktop, and adds 2 icons in the Quick Launch area. All without ever asking you what you want. Desktop Armor catches all those changes and lets you choose to keep or reject them.
And many more. There are dozens and dozens of different settings that Desktop Armor watches to protect you.
