Registry Defender

This component defends the most critical registry key values from modification by malicious programs. All the controlled keys are grouped into the built-in categories. Registry Defender is switched on by default.

To use Registry Defender make sure it is enabled first (set its switcher to ON from Main Page, for instance, if it is not so).

To manage the controlled keys, click the Registry Defender tab:

Registry Defender window

The page contains the table with predefined categories:

Field Description
Category/Key path Shows the category name and key paths or key path masks it contains.
Description/Value Shows the category description and values of the controlled key path. The * wildcard means all the values within a key path are controlled.
Note!Note: you can see two types of key path mask. For instance:
  • \HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Extensions\* - only subkeys within the key path are taken;
  • \HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\FindExtensions* - both the key path and its subkeys are taken.

To exclude a category or key path from the control, uncheck it then click the Apply changes button.

To return the default set of the controlled key paths, click the Reset to default button.
