    I JUST WENT TO THIS WEBSITE http://tds.diamondcs.com.au AND I SAW THAT THEY ARE FREEWARE PRODUCTS LIKE REGISTRY PROT. I JUST WANT TO KNOW THAT REGISTRY PROT IS SAFE TO DOWNLOAD OR NOT.

    Welcome Sunita.

    Of course it's safe - there's no safer place to download software then from the developers website itself ;)

    regards.

    AFAIK there is no good registry protection tool at the moment. DCS RegProt is outdated. That's why we all hope that DCS will develop an updated version soon.

    There are so many autostart methods. Some of them are new. DCS should know them all.

    Therefore, please update RegistryProtect (and please make sure that there is a custom configuration method which allows you to add aditional reg keys).

    As long as the Autostart Guard -working together with the AutoStartViewer- is not there yet to replace RegistryProtection it might be at least worth to give it a try. One can best see it on your own system using it yourself. It might work fine for the time being while the whole internet community is waiting for the new one.
    It's really easy to use, you might have to disable protection temporary while installing new software, maybe it is not necessary, it is all trying out on your system.

    There are lots of other very nice tools there, of which many are even free and do look athe shareware programs too.

    Which windows version are you running and aer you looking at some specific protection?

    Like millions of others with you :)
    But set five windows something systems in a row and all react differently, not only because of differences in the hardware but also in installed software and how we use our systems, settings, configurations, etc.
    If you would not like it, disable the protection function and uninstall it after that, no bad residus from that.
    It might be when it is running and protecting your registry at installing a new program you might have to disable the protective function (press on the button) a moment to enable proper install and press it back after installation, where you can expect the program to report the new additions.
    With this you are sure nothing can add itself illegal to your registry nor make changes.
    The program is a good start to try what registry protection can do for you, while waiting for the next build.
    In the TDS scripts Andreas(W) created a registry monitor script too, located in the UserSubmitted scripts > Andreas > RegMon
