RegMerge: Compare Registry Files With Windows Registry & Merge Changes

Windows Registry is a database that is used to store the configuration settings of Windows native system utilities and user applications. It includes default settings for the operating system components and user applications, as well as information related to hardware connected to the computer. It  is used by device drivers, kernal, UI, SAM and other third party applications. As various processes and services are continuously running in the background, changes made by these components are also reflected in real-time in Windows Registry. Windows doesn't provide any way to monitor these changes in real-time, however, back in January, we covered an application for Windows called RegFromApp, which let users monitor the changes made to registry by any selected application. Although quite handy, it did not provide you any kind of option to check and compare the changes made to Windows Registry. We have another software for our readers that might cope with this problem. Labeled as RegMerge,  it is an application for Windows that allows you to compare one or more Windows registry (REG) files with current values in Windows Registry. This may come helpful in situations where you need to compare the changes between exported registry keys and current registry keys to decide whether the exported registry hives are to be restored or not. Additionally, it provides you with an option to merge all the selected changed registry keys into Windows registry. Read More
