Registry Finder

Registry Finder 2.31

Registry Finder is an innovative little utility program designed, surprisingly enough, to help you find stuff in the registry.

But it does more. Registry Finder is also a straightforward and simple registry editor. It has all the same functionalities of the basic system RegEdit but has a lot more up its sleeve. As well as being able to browse the local registry, you can also create and delete values, and also rename keys. It's also possible to modify values such as string, multi-string, DWORD etc.

You can also open multiple registry windows that will reopen on the same registry keys as when you closed it, which is good in the event of a reboot or crash.

Searching the registry is quick and efficient, and all found items are displayed in separate windows in a list, with each line representing its own single match of the search criteria. A handy icon also shows exactly where the match occurred. It's also possible to jump straight to any found results in the Registry window and crucially, delete or edit them directly within the same window.

The software also supports searching for so called 'hidden registry keys' i.e. the ones with null characters in the name, which are not accessible with RegEdit.

The replace feature is also handy in that it makes replacing individual or multiple occurrences within a string easy to do. Importantly, the replacements are only performed in items within the Results window you are working from.

Thankfully any operations undertaken within Registry Finder including deleted strings can be undone and redone. Every change you make is recorded in a 'History Window,' which is easily accessible from the main menu, with the last action carried out marked with a small yellow arrow for ease of reference. Registry Finder also has a number of good command line parameters that can be used to customize behavior.

You don't have to install Registry Finder to use it, and can be ran from either USB or on the hard drive itself. The binaries contain both 32 and 64 bit versions so you don't need to choose one or the other.

You also need elevated privilege to run Registry Finder, and can't use it if User Account Control is on. A final nice touch is that should Registry Finder crash, the developer wants to know all about it, and also appreciates feedback of nay kind, but advises that you should only be using the latest version, which is fair enough, we think.

Key Features:
  • Comprehensive registry finder and editor.
  • Good tools.
  • Useful Command lines.
  • Undo and redo functionality.
  • Freeware.
  • Not for casual users.

The Registry Finder utility is released as Freeware, which is always nice, which means you can share it with anyone as long as you don't charge for it.

Registry Finder also works with Windows from XP all the way up to Windows 10.

If you've just read all the above and are scratching your head or have only understood part of it, this utility probably isn't for you. Registry Finder is aimed at people who understand and know what they are doing. Don't go mucking about with your computer's registry settings unless you do actually know what you are doing!
