     Re-written to include optional value enumeration. Added a registry monitoring routine, that could easily be expanded into a pre-commercial spyware monitoring application. Auto calculates ideal polling intervals based on number of values being monitored. Enumeration routine uses recursion with collections and arrays, and is very fast. Comparison engine includes adjustable tolerances, and search window reacts dynamically based on new key/value frequency. Added aglorithm that calculates ideal search tolerances based on difference size/array size. Can take a binary image of a registry branch and restore. Auto snapshot and user choice restore values during monitoring cycles. A lot of good code here.. If people vote on this, maybe I'll add a routine that shows you how to snapshot and compare files on your hard drive too.. John

Note: Due to the size or complexity of this submission, the author has submitted it as a .zip file to shorten your download time. Afterdownloading it, you will need a program like Winzip to decompress it.Virus note:All files are scanned once-a-day by Planet Source Code for viruses, but new viruses come out every day, so no prevention program can catch 100% of them. For your own safety, please:
  1. Re-scan downloaded files using your personal virus checker before using it.
  2. NEVER, EVER run compiled files (.exe's, .ocx's, .dll's etc.)--only run source code.
  3. Scan the source code with Minnow's Project Scanner

If you don't have a virus scanner, you can get one at many places on the net
