What's new?
  • Updated ManageACL_32 and ManageACL_64 to v1.5.0.
  • Fixed and adjusted multiple areas of the user interface to better handle systems with high DPI enabled. Many new laptops are coming with HD screens that have a very large resolution and so their DPI is set very high to make programs and text readable. When this increase DPI was set many parts of the program didn't draw correctly. There are still a few areas that need adjusting but all the major ones have been fixed.

RawReg allows to edit offline registry hives. It can be used (for example) to edit BCD hives, NTUSER, software and many other registry hives found inside Windows 2000 and above, including those created by Sandboxie. Information is provided on the physical offset position of each registry key on the hive file, useful for debugging a registry hive with the aid of an hexadecimal editor.

The program can browse the registry, change value data, edit value titles, and show a map with information on the data in each area.

MJ Registry Watcher is a system tray program that monitors and alerts you to changes to any registry keys files or folders.

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

why doesn't the author put all the .wav files in a subfolder?

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!

nice program to really mess up your system-had to reinstall outlook express!Try googling" regcleaner last freeware version"that program is safe and been using it for years-you can install a program then open regcleaner and it will show you what keys have been added-that same comany made regsupreme which I use but no longer made-that has never caused me any problems.regcleaner has an installer but does not write to the registry-dont know if it works on windows 7 but try maybe.
