Used this program to successfully extract keys from an older backup of the Registry hive files. Followed an online guide which recommended it since it automatically tweaks the exported key file with the correct path for importing into the registry.

@Allen, please, you have to understand what this program does! It's a viewer for RAW windows registry files, a.k.a. HIVE files.
When you export your registry keys, click the "Save as type" drop-down menu and select "Registry Hive Files". You will be able to open your resulting file in RegistryViewer (then, try to open it with RegSeeker :) ).
@Special already addressed the "un-safe" google findings.
Trust me, it is a great tool!

Your statements"So does this work for anyone on Windows 7? I've tried dropping several reg files but this app does nothing, just blank." and "I've used regedit to export some random keys to test this app but it doesn't read the stuff I export. Also when you "Open" whats the difference between SYSTEM, SOFTWARE, SAM, NTUSER.DAT, SECURITY, USERDIFF and DEFAULT?"
I'll just stick with regedit and RegSeeker. RegSeeker does things even Ccleaner & PrivaZer can't seem to do.

Those sites you linked... Well I'll let the WOT score speak for them selves

Seems like shady sites, and I wouldn't put to much trust into them. I've also ran this app in Sandboxie and it leaves nothing behind but the ini file in the app folder, I've also ran RegFromApp along side this and nothing is saved to the registry. It is as portable as portable gets, literally you just delete the folder that this program resides in and it's gone from your system.

Backup your claims please, link to the sources that claim that this portable program is "hard to remove" from systems once used.

There is nothing to "google", thus no need for a "safer" alternative! Mr. Werner Rumpeltesz (a.k.a. Gaijin) is a trustworthy software developer! Here is the VT result in this case (RegView.exe v1.3.0.0):
All his apps are clean and definitely safe as long as you get them from their homepage!

I'd suggest using Nirsoft's RegScanner as a better/safer alternative:
