What all is changed in registry?

By josh ·
Well, I was wondering if there was a way to find out what all is changed in your registry when you install a program. For example... I install a game, after the instalation, I want to find out what all was added to the registry, what all was changed, ect.. Is there a way to do that?

The only way I know of to track registry changes is to install a system monitor program that tracks and records all changes to a system.

The Install Monitor function of V-Com System Suite is one such utility.

Other than monitor software, your only option would be to backup the registry files and manually compare the new version to the old.
