You don't see very many commercial tools for the registry. I recently ran across
which has some rather niffty features for Windows NT, Windows 2000 and XP.
It does everything that regedt32 does plus :
- Protected Environment
saves a copy of the Registry before you edit and has "Undo" functions available
while editing the Registry. Unlike other Registry editing tools, a mistake made
while editing with RegSafe won't trash your system.
- Registry Comparison
RegSafe goes beyond simple
Registry Editing with its powerful Comparison features. Compare Current or
Snapshot Registries, compare keys/values within the same Registry, compare
access control lists (ACL) on Windows NT/2000/XP systems. You name it, RegSafe
- Powerful Export Features
other advanced users will appreciate RegSafe's export feature, which allows
portions of a Registry or Registry comparison results tree to be exported to a
.reg file (Regedit4 format).
- Partial or Full Registry Restoration
unwanted change to the Registry was made, or a problem with the Registry is
detected, RegSafe can perform a partial or full restoration of a Registry
snapshot to the current ("live") Registry.
- Registry Restoration for Non-booting Systems
RegSafe's Command Prompt SOS technology can restore the Registry even
when your system will not boot into Windows. SOS restores the Registry on
Windows 9x, ME, NT, 2000 and XP systems with FAT, FAT32 and NTFS-formatted
drives. In addition, RegSafe provides Recovery Console restoration on Windows
