RegScanner 2.05 (32-bit)
Find Registry keys - fast

If you ever need to locate or examine multiple Registry entries then right now you'll probably launch REGEDIT, choose the Find option, enter the search string you need and see what comes up. This works, but it's slow, and forces you to sit there, evaluate every Registry key as it turns up, then press [F3] to move on to the next. If you have to browse through many keys then this quickly becomes tedious in the extreme.

RegScanner is a tiny, portable utility that's designed to cut down on RegEdit hassles and simplify your Registry searches. It lets you specify the base keys and values you'd like to check, so you could opt to search only DWORD values under HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE and HKEY_CURRENT_USER, for instance. You're able to carry out case-sensitive string searches. And there's even an option to examine only Registry keys that have been modified in the time period you specify, so for example you could choose to display everything that's been changed in the last 15 minutes.

But the best part is that the search results appear in a single list. You don't have to sit there, hammering the [F3] key - everything just pops up in the search window and you can evaluate the results side-by-side. Then, if you decide you need to edit something, click a value, press F8, it'll open in RegEdit and you can change it to suit your needs.

Recent changes include:
Version 2.05:
     ◦Fixed bug: RegScanner crashed when searching values using wildcard.
Version 2.04:
     ◦Fixed to display date/time values according to daylight saving time settings.
Version 2.03:
     ◦Added 'Clear Recent Files List' option to the 'Recent Config Files' menu.

Verdict:

A very useful search tool, and the perfect way to speed up those lengthy RegEdit sessions

Ashampoo Burning Studio 2013 (v11.0.6)

Free Full Commercial Software

Ashampoo Burning Studio 2013 is a compact, simple, but surprisingly feature-packed disc burning suite.

The program makes it easy to create simple data discs and audio CDs, for instance: just drag and drop your files onto the list area and you'll be burning the finished disc in a couple of clicks.

That's just the start, though. Burning Studio 2013 can also create data discs with customised, interactive multi-page menus, perfect if you'd like a more professional way to share and present the disc contents.

A built-in backup tool allows you to create backups which may be encrypted, compressed, and span several CDs, DVDs and Blu-rays.

And there are modules to create VCD or SVCD video projects; burn video DVDs or Blu-ray discs from prepared folders; create, browse or burn disc images (ISO, CUE/ BIN and Ashdisc formats are supported); copy discs, erase them, design and print disc covers, labels and booklets, and more.

The focus throughout is on ease of use, though, and so Ashampoo Burning Studio 2013 remains very straightforward, whatever you're doing. Most disc projects are created via the same simple interface, and for the most part all you have to do is drag and drop the necessary files. But experts will find more advanced options are only a click away, and if you need to then you can set ISO and UDF version, enable Joliet, make a disc bootable and more.

Note the download here will take you to the Downloadcrew Software Store where you can download Burning Studio 2013.
