Hi guys, I know that next question will be something near a science fiction but I'm gonna
ask it anyway. I'm working on various ways how to increase speed and performance on XP
machines.
I would like if there is a way for me to somehow record these upgrades / tweaks as I apply it to particular machine if possible as registry file so when I want to deploy it on particular machine, I just run it.
Now I know that same effect can be achieved throught group policies but I don't have the time to deal with it at the time. Thanks

There are many commercial/free software which will allow you to monitor you registry and tell you which changes have been made (which keys have been modified)
if you satisfied with your modification, you can export modified registry keys, merge it into one reg file and then run it  on onther machines.

Hi,

Microsoft provide a piece of software for this.

It's called Procmon http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/sysinternals/bb896645.aspx

It can be set to monitor everything that happens on your computer, including registry key changes...

It's effective, thorough and free...

Hello.

You can use Sysinternals' RegMon tool to record registry changes to an RegMon log file.
Then you can use Jon Galloway's RegmonToRegfile tool to turn that RegMon log file into an .reg file that is ready for import.
In case you don't have an MSN live account to download the current version, I've uploaded it for you at RapidShare.

Good luck.

Booth barryhiggins3 and Saxtus gave a god tips. And these programs are doing the raw job of recording
registry processes. I see that these programs have a filters what is very grateful but I need program same as this which is capable of only filtering the processes initiated by user because it's kind of messy when it list all of them, which are not of my concern. Tnx

Then another free tool might suit you:
RegFromApp

It records in a .reg file the changes made to the registry by a specific application.
Put the windows registry editor as the application that this program should monitor and you will make it record the changes you manually make through the regedit.
