How to monitor changes to system by application installation?

I want to find out what changes (registry, files, etc) has been done by an application installation. Is there any freeware for Windows 7 to keep a snapshot of the system before installing an application and then used the snapshot to report all the changes by the application installation?

You can do this with Process Monitor from SysInternals. No installation needed. Download and run Procmon.exe.

Click on Help then How to use then look at the info for Registry.

I don't think Process Monitor can take a snapshot and report differences. If it does, I must have missed it.
