I got to change value to one of the registry keys for Microsoft office products installed on my machine. I wanted to know the list of applications installed in my machine that are affected by this change. I have very basic knowledge about windows registry stuff. Is there any way to find out list of applications accessed by a particular registry key in its life time ever since the key is created.

You could enable security audit on objects and check the security eventlogs but usually there are way too much information there to be able to handle it easily.
Another way would be to use procmon and specify a filter on this specific registry entry and let it log to a file for a week of test of every installed applications.
