One of the gents I work with uses registry monitors so he can see at a glance when his registry is being accessed and stuff written that he does not want there. I've not heard of these before, and plan to ask him when he returns next year. He does do a lot of stuff that would require a heavy duty spyware/virus setup (and that's all I'll say on the matter - I've lectured him, but it's his life, after all) and I was wondering if anyone else has had any experience with registry monitors, and if they are all they are cracked up to be. Seems to me that if you see activity there when there shouldn't be any, the damage is already done.

Thanks,

v

I've used RegistryProt before and if something trys to change your registry it give you the option to allow it or block it. So it can stop something before damage is done. A good thing about is it doesn't use a lot of resources.

However, I wouldn't stop using anti-virus and anti-spyware programs and rely on RegistryProt as mine only protection, since there are many nasties that can get on your machine without changing your registry.

No, I've been safe and clean for over two years now with the specs mentioned in my computer specs; however, what this cat mentioned I had never heard of, which is rather odd. But I'll check it out nad get back to you.

Thanks for the response.

ps: my kid thinks your icon is the greatest. every time we watch either flick that's who he focuses on. :)
