    Threatfire will be good if you know what to cover. (It has customizable settings) Online Armor could possibly do, for it is a HIPS but if you buy it it will offer a greater flexibility :thumb:

    Partially, it could limit damage done by malware if used correctly

    I think SpyShelter Free can be better choise than StormShield...it's more featured and offers not only registry protection...unfortunately free don't supports 64-bit systems :doubt:

    You should look a little more in depth at software that does this and test. You'll be suprised as to what information you can get from your registry alone. If you would like I could post a few documentations from updated analysis on malware to show what type information you would get from monitoring your registry.

    JMonge,

    UAC will protect the registry HKLM hive of the registry for you.

    Now there is a manual procedure to protect the autorun registry keys using regedit and autoruns.

    Just run autoruns and set it show all EMPTY entries and keys also microsoft and windows keys.

    Loook for the HKCU entries listed and empty.

    Create a key with the name as mentioned by autoruns when the key does not exist in the regsitry (with regedit). Right click this key and select set permissions. Now disable/deny to set a value and create a subkey for users.

    When you run regedit as admin you will still be able to change those keys (e.g. with programs installs and windows updates).

    Make sure to create a windows backup point before trying this :D

    Now all programs with normal user rights (the default for all programs started by explorer) will not be able to change those keys.

    As mentioned malware can do litte harm (at least most AVś will be able to correct the damage done in user land) when UAC is on full and UAC protects the HKLM hive.

    For the less daring I would advise RegRun free. It checks all your autorun entries and help you decide which are good or bad. It even has an option to install some form of protection (I believe it is called regrun tracer) and an early boot undo (I believe it is called partizan).

    I would try this first, before going the risky manual way as described above.

    Regards Kees
