Windows 7: Any registry utility for W7 x64?

Any registry utility for W7 x64?

Does anyone know registry utility which can run on W7 x64?

More specifically what I need is something which will list up all registry entries based on a key word I enter. I have been using regedit but I have to delete one by one, which is very time consuming.

if you mean something like a registry cleaner that actually analyses 64 bit keys, and not just the ones visible to 32 bit applications, I know a few:

  • there are the utilities included in windows 7 manager, it does a very deep (or just slow? ) scan of the registry and haven't had any problem with it
  • CleanMyPc Registry Cleaner x64 edition - fast and safe
  • Bytessence registry cleaner : freeware, there is a 64bit version, appears to work well, but since it is in beta version, I'd recommend to be careful : http://www.bytessence.com/brc.html
For sure there are others, and really a lot that work, but only for keys visible to 32 bit applications.

if you meant something more specific, don't hesitate to add some details

I think thats half the trouble with registry cleaners. The program is 32-bit and not 64-bit and that seems to mess up the registry.

the program itself can be 32 bit and still be made to process 64 bit keys, as an example that's what CleanMyPc Registry Cleaner x64 edition does, but this is the main idea, yes


edit: I'll add more freeware soon

Does any of those in your post list up ALL registry entries based on a key word entered by user?

ok, so you mean more general utilities

for the search feature I recommend regscanner, there is x64 version, it's free: RegScanner Tool: Alternative to RegEdit find/search of Windows

as for the registry cleaner in windows 7 manager, Windows 7 Manager is a software: Tweak and Optimize your Windows 7 - Windows 7 Manager


edit: what are the other features you need?

If you want a registry EDITOR you can check out Registrar Lite, the free version of Registrar Pro.

Resplendence Software - Registrar Registry Manager

It does not specify Windows 7 yet but Vista x32 and x64 and Server 2008 x64 are supported.

For cleaning I use CCleaner.

Thank you very much everyone.
The RegScanner appears to be the one I was looking for. I used to use Reg Organizer but since this is for 32bit only so that I can no longer use it.

I once used registry cleaning utility(RegCure) but it often caused problem if I did not carefully select which to delete from the list generated by the utility. The process of reviewing each listed entries was very time-consuming.
I wonder if there is a registry utility which lists in two categorized group, one which is relatively safe to delete and another which needs close review. CCleaner seems very popular but how is the list presented in this regard.
