Who is using regshot?
« on: June 17, 2013, 02:11:13 PM »
It is a tool is a registry compare utility that allows you to quickly take a snapshot of your registry and then compare it with a second one - done after doing system changes or installing a new software product.

Get it here: http://sourceforge.net/projects/regshot/

Anyone?

I personally do not mess with the registry and this program seems pointless.

Why..?

What on earth would i wish to take different snapshots of the registry for...?

This is not useful..

Thanks.

Hi Polonus,
I like the idea of it. A user can check the registry before and after software installation, an uninstall, or a malware infection.

However, it's probably not for novice users.

I've used it a lot of years ago... Really did not miss it, although it was technically very good.

It is used by malware removal expert to compare registry snapshots,.
I forwarded the software link to the qualified removers here...
