USB Oblivion v1.11.6.0 Updated

  • 5MB (uncompressed)
  • Released on 8 Oct 2017

USB Oblivion 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.

EncryptedRegView v1.01 downloads attempts from TPFC bomb with a "Forbidden" error message.

See error message details here :

However, downloading straight from Nirsoft site works fine :

I've been using this program for so long I didn't realize how dependent on it I'd become. I had to use the default registry program that comes with Windows and found it very cumbersome. If you work with the registry, you probably need this.

smaragdus on 2014-09-11 14:35

RegScanner 2.05 released.

DriveCleanup v1.5.0

billon on 13 Jul 2017
  • 97KB (uncompressed)
  • Released on 12 Jul 2017
  • Suggested by guinness

DriveCleanup removes all currently non present "Storage Volumes", "Disk", "CDROM", "Floppy" USB drives and their USB devices from the device tree. Furthermore it removes orphaned registry items related to these device types. Both are not removed by similar programs on the site and take up space on the registry, eventually slow down a computer over time.

To preview program actions, start with argument -T (test mode).

A 64-bit version is available (within the folder).

Windows Registry Recovery v1.6.1

billon on 7 Mar 2017
  • 3MB (uncompressed)
  • Released on 7 Mar 2017
  • Suggested by AlephX

Windows Registry Recovery allows to directly read files containing Windows registry hives and extract many useful information about the configuration and windows installation settings of the host machine.

Note that the program is not simply a registry editor: it works with other tools, including exported keys. It’s useful for seeing registry issues, sandboxing tools, and diagnostics. To your own computer's registry files, open a NTUSER.DAT system file but keep in mind that these are usually hidden by Windows to avoid accidental deletion.

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.

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.
