    It probably puts something in the registry or keeps track in a program configuration file. In any case, you're not likely to figure out exactly where and how it's doing this.

    Nearly every piece of software on the market makes changes to a computer that can't be completely undone and isn't totally explained. In most cases it doesn't cause problems.
