IMHO, the best registry cleaner is Argente Registry Cleaner. Supports 64-bits and there's a portable version. I'll probably add it to the database next month. www.argentesoftware.blogspot.com/

I totally second lautrepay's opinion about Argente Registry Cleaner.
Happy holidays everybody!

  • Released on 13 Apr 2014

@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/ ...

Registry Commander v15.02.15

Checker on 16 Feb 2015
  • 702KB (uncompressed)
  • Released on 15 Feb 2015
  • Suggested by Tom

Registry Commander is designed to replace Windows RegEdit. It supports all 12 data types in the registry, defined in the "winnt.h" header file. The advanced search feature allows you to search part or all of the registry by keyword, size or data type. You can bookmark keys or values so that they can be accessed more quickly. You can also change the data type of a value without affecting its content.

Stealth: ? Yes
Unicode support: No
License: Freeware
How to extract: Download the RAR package and extract to a folder of your choice. Launch RegCmd.exe.
What's new?

A victim of its own success? "CPU Limit Reached"! (http://error404.000webhost.com/cpu-limit-reached.html)

SoftPedia wasn't able to update (http://www.softpedia.com/get/Tweak/Registry-Tweak/Registry-Commander.shtml) and RegCmd_13.02.23.rar is nowhere to be found (at least by googling, so don't bother); you can watch a video of it (http://youtu.be/f3zweTbW8xU)... >:)

Google worked for me, found a hosted copy at:
http://rsload.net/soft/registry/13005-aezay-registry-commander.html

The site is Russian, but the download will break if translated, just scroll down the page and look for the hyperlink:
Скачать: Aezay Registry Commander v13.02.23

Site is back up...

Thanks for that, Ruby, but I had already gotten it from the guy who posted that video. It might be of help to others. Anyway, grateful for the consideration... :)

for thiose having trouble with this app, there are 2 versions; 32bit and 64bit. if you run a 64bit OS you'll probably want both - 32bit for monitoring 32bit apps and 64 for 64 apps

Magibon on 2011-06-10 01:34

only problem i run into with this wonderful app is it doesn't work for all apps.

Ruby on 2011-06-22 16:00

@Magibon

I find that RegFromApp will only capture reg writes if the app your monitoring is actually doing the writing.

Let's say your monitoring an app/installer that creates a 'Working directory' e.g. %temp%/MonitoredApp and dumps some files that now write to the registry, these writes do not get captured because the monitored app is not doing the writing.

How I find RegFromApp useful:

1. In concert with Regshot: RegFromApp will only capture writes from the program not the system.

2. Capture and Export: I use Chromium web browser and pass args on the command line to keep all files in the app directory e.g. --user-data-dir=.\
The only problem is that when I "Make Chromium my Default Browser" it doesn't transfer the command line to the registry.

By starting Chromium from/within RegFromApp as an admin I can capture these reg entries and export for editing (search and replace) with a text editor and add the command line and merge back into the registry.
