(Windows Store applications) is supported.

* Updated look.

* Bug fixed: If you try to reboot the computer without
closing Soft Organizer, a message was shown that latter does
not allow to end the session.

What's New in 3.51:

* Bug fixed: High CPU resources consumption during the work
of the standard uninstaller when removing an application.

What's New in 3.50:

* When removing the application traces now the backup is
created in the Undoing Change Center. This makes it easy
to recover the deleted application traces in case of
necessary, for example, if you removed the program's
traces, whereupon decided that you wish to continue using

* Uninstalling applications is faster due to the fact that
the system restore point is not created now before the
application's traces removal. (The quickly working Undoing
changes center is now used instead to provide the ability
to rollback the traces removal).

* If the installer execution tracking agent is enabled, it
gets loaded with a 1 minute delay after logging in to
the system. (Previously this used to occur immediately after
logging in.) This was done to boost the system's moving
into the fully working condition by reducing the number
of processes executed simultaneously just after the system
has loaded.

What's New in 3.41:

* The application icons in the tabled view became larger
and rendered better (under Windows Vista or higher).

* Increased accuracy of the application installing with
tracing function. In some cases the superfluous registry
might have been added to the applications traces.

What's New in 3.40:

* The search for the installed applications updates function
now works faster (significantly faster on some systems).

* When pressing the Download Update button for one of the
applications for which the update was found, the new version
information page is opened right away now, without the
intermediate page. For applications with the verified update

What's New in 3.33:

* The Installer Execution Tracking Agent has been updated
to eliminate incorrect recognition of some launched processes
as installers.

* Bug fixed: In some cases the superfluous folders were
added to the applications traces.

What's New in 3.32:

* Bug fixed: In some cases the superfluous registry entries
had been added to the applications traces.

What's New in 3.31:

* For each installed application, Soft Organizer now shows the
percentage of users who removed the application shortly after
installation. This helps to identify the unnecessary applications.

* A change to the installed applications updating function. If an update
is detected for some application and Soft Organizer can provide a
verified download link for the update, the application will be
highlighted in the list with a checkmark.

* Interface improvement: The Notation Conventions window's height was
increased which removes the vertical scroll bar.

* Improved accuracy of the application installing with tracing
function, so that the system changes which do not apply to the
application being installed will not be registered.

* Other minor changes and improvements.

What's New in 3.26:

* When uninstalling applications that may change the browser settings,
like various browser toolbars, Soft Organizer shows information
about how to return your browser's settings to the initial state.

* Soft Organizer is now able to determine the name of the application
installed with tracing even if it does not register itself in the
registry (in the uninstall keys). For example, such situation
may take place for portable applications. Earlier, by default
such applications were assigned the "Installed Application" name.

* The Installer Execution Tracking Agent has been improved.

* Fixed bugs:

1) When running under the 64-bit system, when running the application's
tracing using the Explorer context menu the program to be traced
have not been launched automatically if located in the
C:\Windows\System32 folder.

2) Hanging-up when showing the main window under Windows XP.

What's New in 3.21:

* Entries filtering is accelerated on slow systems when entering the
search string in the top right part of the window.

What's New in 3.20:

* Ability to read and write comments to the applications. The corresponding
command has been added to the context menu.

* Now is it easy to remove multiple applications at once. To activate
this function select a program and click at the arrow on the Uninstall
Application button.

* The rarely used items have been removed from the applications
list. Currently, a larger number of system and service components will not be
shown in the applications list by default, but it is easy to enable the
displaying of them, if necessary, by using the button on the status bar
at the bottom of the window.

What's New in 3.17:

* Now Soft Organizer checks for updates for more of programs.

* A right click on every tree-like list in the program now results in
selecting the item (not only summoning its context menu).

What's New in 3.16:

* A button was added beside the program names allowing you to view what a
program is meant for. (Available only for a limited number of programs
yet. The database is continually filling up.)

* The Applications list menu now features a command to export the list of
installed programs to an HTML file.

* If an application for which installation was traced is removed without
Soft Organizer participation (for instance, using its own uninstall
tool) the traces data is not erased. You can use it later to clean the
system from the uninstalled application leftovers.

* Added Polish language support.

* Fixed bug: If the installed programs updates feature has been disabled
through the Soft Organizer settings, the ability to group the programs
by the new version existence was still available in the menu.

In describing "What's New," you say that "The Installer Execution Tracking Agent has been updated to eliminate the false operations." Please explain what you mean, in the context of tracking installations, by a "false operation."

We've added to the ignore list by default the program ScriptHelper.exe which often incorrectly recognized as an installer.
