Registry Guard

Product Overview

NoVirusThanks Registry Guard is a powerful utility which uses a kernel-mode driver to prevent any process or only specific processes from writing\reading\deleting custom registry keys\values. You can prevent, for example, any process from writing to registry autostart locations, or prevent processes from hijacking your Internet Explorer registry settings, and much more. With NoVirusThanks Registry Guard you can easily protect custom Windows registry keys and values from unauthorized modifications or deletions, a swiss army knife against nasty malware and trojans. For your information, we have created Registry Guard Service, a service-only version.

By default, NoVirusThanks Registry Guard prevents any process from writing to common registry startup locations. To edit the default rules or to create your custom rules, open the “Rules” tab and then click the button “Edit Rules” (it may ask you Admin credentials) to edit the Rules.DB file. The rules are updated in real-time. Writing rules is very easy, you can use wildcards characters and aliases, example:
