    here's a quick guess,

    the shield dll probably uses conventional api hooking to intercept the
    registry calls from the app to advapi32.dll, which is the normal way of
    accessing the reg.

    Registrar probably is using the NT 'Native API' which the shield dll is not
    intercepting - yet. see http://www.sysinternals.com/ntw2k/info/ntdll.shtml
