Collecting Registry Data

Slava Murygin shows how to use Powershell to read the Registry:

At third, that is a priceless piece of documentation!!! (I mean FREE!!!) which you can put in a folder and report to your boss.

Registry settings are a good part of a baseline, particularly a security baseline.
