Registry Guard Service

Product Overview

Registry Guard Service is the service-only version of the Registry Guard software application. It allows you to block processes from writing/reading/deleting custom registry keys and values. It can save a log file with the date/time, fully qualified process path, parent process file path and other useful information. The service version is specifically built for companies that want to install it on thousands of PCs, it has no GUI and it runs as a service in the background, thus supporting Standard User Account, Fast User Switching, Multi-Users etc. You can also create custom exclusion rules (supporting wildcards) to allow specific processes to modify the Windows registry.

The service can be configured via a INI file, it can also be passed as a parameter, where you can enable or disable the real-time protection, the logging feature and set the logs folder, the rules folder and the exclusions folder. The settings from the INI file are read in real-time, so you can for example, save the INI file in a shared folder with read-only attributes, and manage thousands of PCs from a single INI file. We have included some rules that prevent any process from writing to registry startup locations. The service works on all versions of Microsoft Windows 32/64-bit.


Registry Guard Svc can be used to prevent malware from writing to registry startup locations or from hijacking specific registry keys and values. Furthermore, it can also protect registry values from being deleted or manipulated by untrusted processes. You can write your own custom rules to protect registry locations, this is a very good security tool useful for companies that want to guard specific registry keys/values and prevent untrusted processes from hijacking important registry locations.
