As a long-time user, this is a registry hackers dream.
Now with Wildcard (*) Support. Find a key, Double click it, & it
loads into Regedit (To do as you will)..?? It also comes as part
of the Nirsoft package.... >> Easily gets 5*

PK it's totally portable and needs no install if you use universal extractor.

For a program that has been around awhile and works on the registry I find that not having a uninstaller for the program is very odd way to care about users computers and the use of this program.

For having no uninstaller this program rates less for not giving a c**p about the end user.

No, it does and always has done more than regedit.
I use it every time I search

Tiny, clean & a complete utility which i was looking for since a long tyme :). Extracted the file and tried it on a vista machine. Worked great! I believe those "all in one" apps break things rather then helping me! Hence scan for what you want & manually remove it! Its really easy to create backups before doing so, which is just a right click away! :)

Thanks mate.

Very useful extension to RegEdit (adds a reasonably fast and more comfortable search). Being lightweight, free and easy to use there remains not much to wish for (I would like localisations, but then again this would make the program bigger). Some speed might be gained by updating the status bar less frequently during the search.

As a registry +scanner+ it's purpose isn't to obliterate or clean anything. It's just a scanner, and does the job a lot quicker than regedit, while collating the results into a list.

For free registry cleaning try Eusing Free Registry Cleaner, or the last freeware version of RegCleaner (4.3)

More good freeware from Nirsoft. Keep it up!

As a registry scanner (seek and display obsolete registry entries), I rate it a zero. That's because it isn't a scanner at all. The program is really just a registry search tool. There is no compelling reason to use it, because it does less than RegEdit. I do like the single file executable, and compact size.

Fantastic finder of left-over registry keys for uninstalled programs. Cannot rate RegScanner too highly. Works fast, clean on Vista (without compatability mode).
