Windows Defender and Spyware Terminator work for me. ST asks for permission when you install or uninstall a program and WD notifies you of any changes made in the registry and startup programs.

A good program that does what you describe is RegistryProt (freeware). It's a small program that runs at startup and it prompts you on whether to allow or block any change to the registry. It detects any key being added or existing ones being modified.

The best defense is regular image backups and system restore. Tracking every key that gets added to the registry is VERY tiresome. ;)

Think you could help me out with that, i've never been big on backing up registry & such, if i make a back up what do i do burn the back up to a cd? and its a bootable cd i use when i want to restore to a previous point? or does it just store in windows & when i want to restore i hit F8 or F12 or whatever before boot then it asks me to back up to previous point? thanks for the advice everyone...
