    Registry change log program?

    Is there a program out there that can watch the registry for changes whilst I install a program? So that I can find which registry keys have been added/removed/changed?

    Thanks!

    total uninstall monitors everything that gets changed when you install software, and can remove it all at the touch of a button, including reg entries and directories

    if u just wanna view the registry entries, im pretty sure u can do tha aswell

    Is there another registry software that checks through the registry and deletes any unused keys. At the moment any time I uninstall a software I spend about 10 minutes searching though for any keys left over.
    Woohoo now Assistant Manager!

    XA04, if you install SpyBot there is a little system tray program that can be installed called "TeaTimer". This sits in your system tray and pops up each time an change to the registry is requested. It shows you the key, the old value and the new one and you can accept or fail each request.

    I think this will do what you want.

    Workaholic, CrapCleaner will do what you want, it can not only delete unused/useless files off your harddrive (although check through what it's going to delete first!) but there is also another tab that allows you to search the registry for unused reg keys.

    Cheers, I actually had this installed for clearing cache from internet browsing and forgot about its other features.
