What is RegAlyzer?  (from Safer-Networking)

RegAlyzer is a tool to browse and change the registry. It was created because of a few features we missed in the original regedit tool, from support for exotic value types over background and regular expression search to better bookmarks, displaying .reg files in the accustomed style and a history view.


RegAlyzer is a software program developed by Safer-Networking. The most common release is, with over 98% of all installations currently using this version. A scheduled task is added to Windows Task Scheduler in order to launch the program at various scheduled times (the schedule varies depending on the version). The software is designed to connect to the Internet and adds a Windows Firewall exception in order to do so without being interfered with. The primary executable is named regalyzer.exe. The setup package generally installs about 4 files and is usually about 4.52 MB (4,736,576 bytes). Relative to the overall usage of users who have this installed on their PCs, most are running Windows 7 (SP1) and Windows 10. While about 51% of users of RegAlyzer come from the United States, it is also popular in Germany and France.
