Hi baxtor  
Welcome to the Community Forums.
As far as I am aware there is no need to scan the whole of the Registry for malware...just specific areas (not all areas of the Registry can play meaningful host to malware), and as a result most AM apps will cover these areas in their scans...some will do it better than others...and that is where the debate to which one is most effective.
