    Is there a tool like Spybot's TeaTimer to monitor registry and such?

    I'm still using Spybot 1.6.2 - only for TeaTimer, but its a resource hog. I do like it for monitoring the registry and such. Is there a free lightweight tool I can use to replace TeaTimer? Thx!!

    I currently use for security:
    • Avast free
    • Malwarebytes Antispyware
    • Spybot (for TeaTimer)
    • Spywareblaster

    Depends in what manner you wish to monitor the registry and what advantage you hope to gain.

    e.g. Regshot compares two versions of the registry to report changes.
    Sysinternals Procmon continuously monitors everything.

    I would like to see when something tries to add itself to the registry or startup and asks me. TeaTimer does this, but it's a resource hog.

    If you would like to replace Avast as well, then 360 Total Security Essential does that.

    By the way, you can ditch Spywareblaster, use ​Ghostery to block tracking or adguard in Edge.
    Instead of blocking webpages via HOSTS, which slows down, you could use safer DNS servers.

    Mike Lin's Startup Monitor - amazingly still works and it is tiny.

    Then there's Winpatrol
