    A list of good HIPS, behavior blockers, Startup monitors, etc. here at Gizmo's on page 7, Chris.

    I do not know of a notification app, but there is a nice little app you can run regularly called What's In Startup (Scroll down a ways for the download link) that makes it simple to find and remove these unwanted and unneeded apps.

    WinPatrol gives such a notification. I recommend Winpatrol highly.

    Coincidently, this helpful article came out today about WinPatrol:

    PS,
    I'm "just" a retired home computer user, so I have no commercial interest in WinPatrol.
