Hiding Registry Keys


Recommended Posts

I wanted to know , is there a direct way of creating and then hiding registry keys created during execution of any app.In other words, the key should not be visible through 'regedit'. Or even if it is visible, then how to encrypt it , so that the key value could not be known?

Help in any coding language would be appreciated

There is another method where you can insert NULL characters in the name of a key so that keys/values under this key are not accessible. They can only be created/modified using the native API (NtCreateKey, NtDeleteKey, NtSetKeyValue)

Programs using the regular Win32 are unable to access them.

Have a look here. Under "Hidden Registry Keys"
