RegScanner scans the Windows registry for values that match a specific search criteria and displays them in one single list for editing and viewing. No longer do you have to press F3 indefinitely to locate the right value. The list can also be exported into a .REG file that can be used in RegEdit.

  • Fixed issue (RegScanner 32-bit without elevation): When scanning the HKCU\Software\Classes\VirtualStore\Machine\SOFTWARE key, RegScanner displayed the keys stored under the HKLM\Software key. This problem was caused by a bug in Regsitry API of Windows and a workaround was added to RegScanner so the Registry scan will work properly with this bug.

I've been using this program for so long I didn't realize how dependent on it I'd become. I had to use the default registry program that comes with Windows and found it very cumbersome. If you work with the registry, you probably need this.

RegScanner 2.05 released.

There is now a 'Regres.dll' in the RegSeeker2.55.zip Archive.

FAQ: Does anybody know, for what this DLL is?

thx

USB Oblivion v1.11.6.0

billon on 8 Oct 2017
  • 5MB (uncompressed)
  • Released on 8 Oct 2017
  • Suggested by I am Baas

USB Oblivion erases all traces of USB-connected drives and CD-ROMs from the registry. Since Windows keeps a record of all devices attached, this is useful both for privacy and for users who prefer "stealth" software.

Dependencies: Administrator rights
Stealth: ? No. Creates setupapi.app.log in Windows\inf during run but then removes it.

Midas on 2016-01-25 00:05

@rmarier: the "Website" link above works for me; just in case you still can't access the main site, you may want to try http://sourceforge.net/projects/usboblivion/ ...

EncryptedRegView scans the Registry of your current running system or the Registry of external hard drive you choose and searches for data encrypted with DPAPI (Data Protection API). When it finds encrypted data in the Registry, it tries to decrypt it. With this tool, you may find passwords and other secret data stored in the Registry by Microsoft as well as by third-party products.

EncryptedRegView v1.01 downloads attempts from TPFC bomb with a "Forbidden" error message.

See error message details here :
https://www.portablefreeware.com/forums/viewtopic.php?p=85692#p85692

However, downloading straight from Nirsoft site works fine :

Download snag from TPFC temporarily circumvented by pointing instead
to EncryptedRegView developer's page.

Thanks, Andrew...;-)

DriveCleanup v1.5.0

billon on 21 Jun 2018
  • 97KB (uncompressed)
  • Released on 12 Jul 2017
  • Suggested by guinness

DriveCleanup removes all currently non present "Storage Volumes", "Disk", "CDROM", "Floppy" USB drives and their USB devices from the device tree. Furthermore it removes orphaned registry items related to these device types. Both are not removed by similar programs on the site and take up space on the registry, eventually slow down a computer over time.

To preview program actions, start with argument -T (test mode).

A 64-bit version is available (within the folder).
