As the name of this program implies, Registry Finder can help you locate particular entries within the Windows Registry.
It is recommended for advanced users who are looking to modify registry entries, in order to clear up system errors and to improve the computer's overall performance.
The app is wrapped in a user-friendly interface where you have several search filters available. Thus, you can make the tool look for keys, values and data in the HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT, HKEY_CURRENT_USER, HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE and HKEY_USERS hives.
Plus, the results may match the case and the whole strong, while Registry Finder can be scheduled to clear the search history on exit.
Once the scanning procedure is done, you can check out the hive, subkey, value name, data and type of each entry. From this moment on, you can open an entry in Registry Editor, copy, edit, replace or bookmark it, as well as export it to a REG file (backup).
The straightforward software solution uses a moderate amount of CPU and system memory, is pretty responsive to commands, and takes a reasonable amount of time to finish a scan task (depending on the size of your Registry).
It did not cause the operating system to freeze, crash or pop up error dialogs during our tests. Registry Finder surely pleases advanced users who prefer an intuitive program for managing the Windows Registry. Unfortunately, no recent updates have been made to the tool.
