Registry Finder 2.25
Registry Finder is a small, innovative utility designed, surprisingly enough, to help you find things in the registry.
But that's more. Registry Finder is also a simple and direct registry editor. It has all the same features of the basic RegEdit system but has a lot more in its sleeve. In addition to browsing the local registry, you can also create and delete values, as well as rename keys. It is 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 them, which is good in the case of a reboot or a crash.
The search in the registry is fast and efficient, and all items found are displayed in separate windows in a list, each line representing its own match of search criteria. A convenient icon also shows exactly where the match has occurred. It is also possible to jump directly to all the results found in the Registry window and, most importantly, to delete or modify them directly in the same window.
The software also supports the search for "hidden registry keys", that is, those with null characters in the name, which are not accessible with RegEdit.
The replacement function is also convenient because it facilitates the replacement of single or multiple occurrences in a string. It is important to note that overrides are only made in the items in the Results window from which you are working.
Fortunately, all the operations performed in Registry Finder, including deleted strings can be undone and redone. Every modification you make is saved in a "history window", which is easily accessible from the main menu, with the last action performed marked with a small yellow arrow for easy reference. Registry Finder also has a number of good command line parameters that can be used to customize the behavior.
You do not need to install Registry Finder to use it, and you can run it from a USB port or on the hard drive itself. The binaries contain 32 and 64 bit versions, so you do not have to choose one or the other.
You also need a high privilege to run Registry Finder and you can not use it if User Account Control is enabled. One more interesting thing is that Registry Finder should go down, the developer wants to know everything about it, and also appreciates nay's comments, but advises that you should only use the latest version, which is fair enough, we think.
Full registry and publisher registry.
Useful control lines.

Not for casual users.
The Registry Finder utility is released as Freeware, which is always nice, which means that you can share it with anyone, as long as you do not charge for it.
Registry Finder also works with Windows from XP to Windows 10.
If you just read all of the above and scratch your head or only partly understand it, this utility is probably not for you. Registry Finder's address to people who understand and know what they do. Do not leave with the registry settings of your computer unless you know what you are doing!
