    Registry Changes - WinPatrol

    Many know of this program from BillP Studios but I thought I would put this link here for those that worry about hidden registry changes to their system. I've used this for a number of years and its saved my butt a few times. I use the FREE version, its very small, runs in the background and virtual no resources are used. Its a great addition to my security setup. Anytime anything wants to change your registry you will be notified and ask your permission to let it be changed. It does a number of other tasks but I use it for the registry alert. I'm curious if others have used this and had sucess with it OR perhaps they're is an even better program out there, of course its got to be FREE

    Almost any time you change a program setting the registry is changed. Surely Winpatrol would annoy you all the time?

    cheers, Paul

    And for the more paranoid there is Process Monitor from Sysinternals that shows real time registry access
