Tweaking.com Registry Backup v2.1.1 Updated

Checker on 10 Feb 2015
  • 8MB (uncompressed)
  • Released on 6 Feb 2015
  • Suggested by olliebean

Tweaking.com Registry Backup does live registry backups using Windows' own Volume Shadow Copy Service. The program is user-friendly and allows selection of specific registry files to backup or restore. Restored backups can be done via Safe Mode or from the recovery console.

Category:
System Requirements: WinXP / Vista / Win7 / Win8
Writes settings to: Application folder
Dependencies: Administrator rights
Stealth: ? Yes
Unicode support: Yes
Path portability: Requires manual entry of relative path (eg. ..\..\personal\work.doc)
License: Freeware
How to extract:
  1. Download the Portable ZIP package and extract to a folder of your choice
  2. Launch TweakingRegistryBackup.exe
  3. In the Settings tab, enter a relative path as the Backup Location

Note: If you are likely to want to restore from the recovery console, use a path relative to the drive root (e.g., "\RegBackup"), otherwise the restore script will fail.
What's new?
  • Fixed a bug where creating a schedule on XP would fail.
  • Updated the schedule backup at login to now wait 5 min before running. This way if a user is using VSS to backup the registry with the program it wont slow down the boot up by hogging the hard drive creating a volume shadow copy.
    Also it allows any registry changes from startup programs to finish before the registry backup is done.
    This new task schedule setting is only for vista, 7 and newer as the XP task scheduler doesn't have a delay option.
  • When clicking the create schedule button, the program will now auto replace the old task, if one was created, instead of making the user delete it first.
  • Updated the default colors to the new lighter scheme. Users can of course always change the colors to what they like.

Please note that interface colors are customizable and, in setting the backup path, TRB v1.8.0 now accepts the following variables:

%CurrentProfile%
%WindowsFolder%
%WindowsDrive%
%CurrentDrive%
%AllUsersDocs%
%MyDocuments%

RegFromApp v1.33 Updated

Checker on 21 Dec 2014

RegFromApp monitors the Registry changes made by the application that you selected, and creates a standard RegEdit registration file (.REG) that contains all the Registry changes made by the application. You can use the generated .REG file to import these changes with RegEdit when needed.

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

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

@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.

MJ Registry Watcher v1.2.8.3

Checker on 1 Sep 2014
  • 6MB (uncompressed)
  • Suggested by AlephX

MJ Registry Watcher is a system tray program that monitors and alerts you to changes to any registry keys files or folders. The default set of keys and files should ensure that nothing gets run at startup without your knowledge and important boot up files don't get changed behind your back, but you can configure it to suit your own needs. The program can also keep a full history of alerts in a log file.

I cannot download MJ Registry Watcher 1.2.7.2. Avast blocks it saying that it's a malware... arwwdwin.exe in the zip seems to be the culprit.
Any idea about this problem?

dany on 2011-06-26 20:10

arwwdwin.exe is a watchdog program that makes sure that RegWatcher can't be terminated by malicious software without you knowing it. It's not harmful in this case, but these kind of programs do often trigger false positives. That's a good thing, but it's up to you to decide if the program is legit or not.
You can always check out the RegWatcher forums or scan the file at http://virusscan.jotti.org/ if you're not sure.
Version 1.2.7.3 is completely clean on jotti.org

Then maybe USBOblivion didn't run with the required privileges: try right click and "Run as administrator"...

Bad link for USB Oblivion v1.10.2.0. The download is at http://code.google.com/p/usboblivion/ and not at http://code.google.com/p/usboblivion/downloads/list
