Registry Live Watch is a small Windows application whose purpose is to help you monitor a user-defined registry key for several changes (subkeys, subvalues, or security).
Since this is a portable program, it is important to mention that it doesn’t leave any traces in the Windows Registry.
You can copy it on any USB flash drive or other devices, and take it with you whenever you need to keep an eye on your registry keys on the breeze, without having to go through installation steps.
Registry Live Watch delivers a user-friendly interface where all dedicated parameters are bundled in the primary panel, so you can easily tweak them. Everything is kept as simple and clear as possible, so even rookies can master the entire process with minimal effort.
The program gives you the possibility to select the root key from a drop-down list (e.g. HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE, HKEY_CURRENT_USER, HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT, HKEY_USERS), enter a custom key that you want to monitor, and watch for the desired changes (all, keys, values, or security).
Additionally, you can make the program trigger an action when a key is modified, namely pop up a notification messages, execute a user-defined program, or log the information into a log.
Last but not least, you are allowed to start or stop the monitoring process, save the log to plain text file format, as well as clear the log with just one click.
All in all, Registry Live Watch comes packed with several handy features for helping you monitor the changes applied to a particular registry key. The intuitive layout makes it an ideal app for rookies and professionals alike.
