    Hi!

    So, I'm toying around with registry protection in Online Armor. Do you lads know what the most important registry keys to protect are?

    So far on my list:

    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\*

    I'd appreciate any suggestions for improvements and a motivation why it's important to protect the registry keys you're suggesting.

    Thanks!

    Maybe you should go check out Comodo. See what's in its protected registry. I think it can be a good reference.

    Most registry monitors are based on registry lists developed by Hojtsy, Tony Blair, & friends many moons ago.

    For an update, download freebie Registry Watcher & take a look at the registry items that it monitors.

    Also take a look at suggested registry coverage by the estimable Kees-sensei at:
