Registry Related Tools: REGEDIT.EXE & REGEDT32.EXE

These standard GUI based Windows tools allow you to look and serach registry. You can also examine access permissions.

Registry Related Tools: KEYTIMES.EXE

This is a free command line based tool which can be downloaded from "http://barnyard.syr.edu/~vefatica/#KTIMES".

The command "keytimes hklm" will dump the machine registry with modification date/time of the keys.

Registry Related Tools: REGSCANNER.EXE

This is a free GUI tool from NirSoft which is better than the Windows tools for searching as it as advanced search specifications and lists all the results.

You can double click on a match to open it in REGEDIT and it also allows you to see the registry modification date & time of keys (see key properies).

This shows the find dialog as well as the properies of one of the matches:

Registry Related Tools: RegAlyzer.EXE

Interesting free alternative to "REGEDIT.EXE", it has advanced search which includes modification time. Much better bookmark capability. To view the modification time click on a key at it will display on the bottom right of the status bar (on my PC time gets truncated).

Not real flash for looking as security info. For more details see "http://www.safer-networking.org/en/regalyzer/".
