This little utility helps in multiple finding and replacing of string data of values in Windows Registry. A friend of mine had to find and change a couple of dozens or even more values in his registry and it would take forever to do it manually, so I made this utility. I thought someone else might find it useful so here it is.

The use is very simple: check the root keys in which values should be sought, enter the any part of the key value string that should be matched (wildcards not supported), enter the string that should replaced the matched part of the key value, click the Find all button. While the utility searches for the matches, any keys that cannot be opened are displayed in a separate window. During the search, press ESC key to stop it. When search is complete, the list of found values is displayed in the listboxes: first listbox contains keys names, the second values and the third is a combobox with the new values data that are to be set on found key values YOU CAN MANUALLY EDIT NEW VALUE DATA by selecting it in the list and editing in the edit box above. To remove a found value from the list (not from the Registry), right-click on the list of keys and select Remove from the values to be replaced. Finally click Replace all to make the multiple replacement.

PLEASE NOTE THAT IT WORKS ONLY ON STRING AND EXPANDED STRING VALUES' DATATYPE!
