Can registry settings be “watched” by a program in Windows?

Let me explain what I mean...

When you edit a configuration file for a service, software or process in Linux, you are generally required to restart or reload it after editing the configuration settings, in order for those configuration settings to take effect.

Is the same true in Windows, when such settings are read from the registry?

Or is it sometimes more of an event driven sort of a thing, where it watches for the settings to change before reloading them?
