Reg Mon

Namespace: WIN_COM_API
Reg Mon (Registry Monitor) has been replaced by Process Monitor. Scott Finegan

>>Process Monitor is an advanced monitoring tool for Windows that shows real-time file system, Registry and process/thread activity. It combines the features of two legacy Sysinternals utilities, Filemon and Regmon, and adds an extensive list of enhancements including rich and non-destructive filtering,... <<

Sys Internals was picked up by MSFT, many of the utilities are still available. Support for OS earlier than XP and Server 2003 is being dropped as utilities are updated.

Regmon is a Registry monitoring utility that will show you which applications are accessing your Registry, which keys they are accessing, and the Registry data that they are reading and writing - all in real-time. This advanced utility takes you one step beyond what static Registry tools can do, to let you see and understand exactly how programs use the Registry. With static tools you might be able to see what Registry values and keys changed. With Regmon you'll see how the values and keys changed..
Regmon works on Windows NT/2000/XP, .NET Server 2003 (RC2 and higher), Windows 95/98/Me and Windows 64-bit/Itanium.

SysInternals has lots of other neat and free utilities too.

(this, in my opinion, is one of those "must have" utilities. It's great for debugging weird application issues and figuring out where the heck an application is hiding/storing information. -- Paul Mrozowski)
