USB Oblivion v1.10.3.0

webfork on 25 Jan 2016
  • 4MB (uncompressed)
  • Released on 13 Apr 2014
  • Suggested by I am Baas

USBOblivion 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.

The download link contains both 32 and 64-bit versions of the program (thanks NickR).

System Requirements: WinXP / Vista / Win7 / Win8
Writes settings to: None
Dependencies: Administrator rights
License: GNU GPL v2
How to extract:
  1. Download the ZIP package and extract to a folder of your choice
  2. Launch USBOblivion32.exe or USBOblivion64.exe if using a 64-bit OS
What's new?
  • Added German translation.
  • Project moved from Google Code to SourceForge.Net.
  • Added VS2013 project.

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.

System Requirements: Win95 / Win98 / WinME / WinNT / Win2K / WinXP / Vista / Win7
Writes settings to: Application folder. A registry editor that does not use the registry. What delicious irony!
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?
  • Fixed an issue with sorted bookmarks. Any action done when a list was sorted, would not act on the correct item.

A victim of its own success? "CPU Limit Reached"! (

SoftPedia wasn't able to update ( 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 ( >:)

Google worked for me, found a hosted copy at:

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... :)

webfork on 28 Jul 2015

System Requirements: Win2K / WinXP / Vista / Win7 / Win8
Writes settings to: Application folder
Stealth: ? Yes

  • Fixed RegFromApp to avoid from BSOD when trying to attach to smss.exe (Be aware that RegFromApp will still fail to capture the smss.exe process).

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


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.

Regshot2 Unicode v2.0.1.70

webfork on 26 Feb 2015
  • 612KB (uncompressed)
  • Suggested by Lupo73

Regshot2 Unicode is a registry change and file system change detection diff tool that takes snapshots, generates HTML reports, and creates automatic REG undo/redo scripts. The program can save/load snapshots to file for later use, while registry path and file path inclusion/exclusion rules can be set to include/exclude paths in the snapshots.

The program includes two components:

  • Registry Shot - It will automatically generate UNDO.REG and REDO.reg registry scripts based upon the difference between two snapshots taken at two points in time.
  • File Shot - will catch file changes based on either timestamp, size, or CRC32/MD5 and report these changes in an HTML file

Note: Regshot2 Unicode is not an update to Regshot, but a unique program. Although it shares a similar interface, it is a code fork by a different author and has many more features.

System Requirements: Win2K / WinXP / Vista / Win7 / Win8
Writes settings to: Application folder
Stealth: ? Yes
Unicode support: Yes
License: Freeware
How to extract: Download the ZIP package and extract to a folder of your choice. Launch Regshot.exe.

NOTE: if the program loads in Russian, close the program and open "regshot.ini" in a text editor. Make sure the first two lines read:

Similar/alternative apps: Regshot
What's new?
  • Updated the Regshot.ini files in all folders
  • RegShot[2] will now start in English by default
  • RegShot[2] Will now save the changes in INF and REG format by default

Weird, upon a second attempt it started in english now, I swear I wasn't crazy, maybe it had something to do with it not starting correctly in Sandboxie or maybe not as administrator or something. :/

@Special: make sure your "regshot.ini" file starts with:

An alternative method is to edit the language.ini file (delete all languages but English)

Regshot v1.9.0

webfork on 22 Nov 2013
  • 129KB (uncompressed)
  • Suggested by Crash

Regshot is a small registry compare utility that allows you to take a snapshot of your registry make changes to your system (such as installing a program) and then taking a second snapshot to compare. The comparison report can be produced in text or HTML format and contains a list of all modifications that have taken place between the first and second snapshot. In addition, you can also specify folders (with subfolders) to be scanned for changes as well.

Alternatively, RegShot Portable automatically switches between 32 and 64-bit and adjusts paths.

System Requirements: Win95 / Win98 / WinME / WinNT / Win2K / WinXP / Vista
Writes settings to: Application folder
Stealth: ? Yes
License: GPL
How to extract: Download the source + binary ZIP package and extract to a folder of your choice. Launch regshot.exe.

Optionally, delete the src subfolder.

@Napiophelios -

JohnTHaller on 2013-06-25 20:04

robertcollier4 - The Regshot2 you are posting about is a different app. It's either a totally different freeware app that copied the layout or an app illegally using the real Regshot's code as a base and not distributing the newer source as required by the GPL. Either way, this entry is about the real Regshot, which is open source, Unicode, portable and has 32-bit and 64-bit versions (the version even switches between them automatically). It's also under active development unlike 'RegShot2' which is abandoned.
