I just wanted to search for registry keys belonging to a third-party software I just installed on Windows 7, but I don't know where to look.

Are there defined spots in the registry where third-party software puts its keys?

For both locations mentioned below, also check under HKEY_CURRENT_USER for per-user non-admin installs. – Karan Feb 2 '13 at 18:48

Typically, 3rd party software places their registry keys are put in HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE.

Also check in HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\WOW6432NODE
