    It seems to me that this program is unnecessary if one is running Process Guard...............is this correct or not :doubt:

    The contrary Rainwalker, they both are very nice contributions to each other, so now you have all processes and important files covered and registry changes and even the options for applications to read or modify registry keys and values at all.

    If you use Process Guard's Execution Protection to block all new software from running and never install anything else then quite likely, yes.

    Otherwise, given the possibility of a nasty being embedded in anything you download, using a registry monitor can give some extra indication that something is amiss (why is this "search optimizer" trying to run on startup?) if you are familiar with the Registry - and as Jooske says, it should complement Process Guard quite well...though its UI seems a closer match for PG 2 rather than PG 3. :D

    However this is better suited to experienced users able to judge what to permit or block (much more so than Process Guard) and does not appear to have the option of "spoofing" changes made by an application (i.e. recording every single change, returning the new/updated values for reads made by that application only while not modifying the registry).

    This feature would allow users to review all changes made (rather than having to approve them one key at a time) and would even allow an application to be run in "trial" mode with Registry modifications only being made (committed) once the user was happy that it was legitimate - or being discarded otherwise.

    Have any BHO like the searchbars, download helpers, realone and all the kind.
    See how with every time you open a browser or use such a tool you'll see the RegDefend warnings and asking for permission for registry changes being made etc.
    Imagine we can block all that GAIN kind of stuff and no more "suitable" advertisements, wonder if that would mean even our ISP's clicks/data collection can be stopped that way.
    I allowed the firewall's privacy advisor telling all the info a site like the MSN homepage wants to drop on our system which is just cookies and blocking banners etc, and RegDefender between that really blocking modifying registry values, great!
    ProcessGuard would block any illegal action on applications and processes.
