    Hi Atomas31,

    I think that is a good question.
    Is it a good idea to find out the registry keys that your security software uses to start up and add those keys to your registry monitoring utility?

    I just wanted to clarify a couple of things for those who answer.
    By system keys, you are referring to registry keys.
    The thread you are referring to is the Registry Monitor Comparison.
    Post #1 of that thread has a very comprehensive list of the important Registry Keys (that would allow a program to launch on reboot). These are the ones that should be monitored for changes, additions, or deletions.

    It would seem like a good idea so that malware would not alter the keys that load your AV to instead load a fake AV shell.
