MJ Registry Watcher v1.2.8.4

Checker on 12 Nov 2015
  • 8MB (uncompressed)
  • Released on 11 Nov 2015
  • 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.

    See EMAIL ALERT CONFIGURATION above. For example, smtp.office365.com/+587
  • Fixed leak in non-paged pool memory usage.

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?

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.

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)... >:)

@Midas
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

Midas on 2013-02-26 10:37

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... :)

RegFromApp v1.33

webfork on 28 Jul 2015

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

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.

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.

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. :/

joby_toss on 2015-02-25 14:38

@Special: make sure your "regshot.ini" file starts with:
[Settings]
Language=English

I am Baas on 2015-02-26 00:39

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