I am looking for a program that will allow me to watch my registry for changes; for example,
Say I am making a change to an application's settings, and I want to find out where that change was made in the registry.  A program that could tell me what specific change was made to what registry key would really help me.  I do not want to install some spyware filled freeware app, which is why I am asking for suggestions.  Thanks, Jon

Actually, RegMon doesn't work in Windows Vista (sorry forgot to mention that).  RegMon suggested that I try Process Monitor v1.25, and it would work great, but there Process Monitor opens thousands of processes, so it is way too hard to find the one I'm looking for.  I'm looking more for an application that will show me recent changes to the registry not all open processes.  Thanks for your help, Jon

That worked, the program opened, but it is unusable.  It updates sooooo fast that there is no way I could capture a change; I mean every half of a second like 30 new rows of data are added.  I played around with the settings, and I couldn't find a way to make it slow down.

set the filter to the exe's name of your application, start the capture, and let it capture all the data you want.

Then save the contents to a log file, its tab delimited.

open it on excel or notepad to analyze the information.

Great, after playing around with it for a few minutes I was able to figure it out.  Thanks again, Jon
