About the Registry module

Security checks in the Registry module compare the current settings with the Registry template records and report changes in registry key ownership, registry keys and values, and last write times of registry keys.

Some module messages can be used to update snapshots to match current agent settings.


Changing the registry incorrectly can cause serious, network-wide problems. Update the Windows Emergency Repair disk before you make any changes.

When you run a policy that contains the Registry module, the module compares current registry information with the Registry templates before any checks are run. Registry templates are enabled in the Template file list option.
