    Unable to open regedit.exe


    Since I upgraded to Windows 10 Pro from Windows 8.1 Pro, I am unable to get my registry open.
    I don't get any warning or error message when opening it. Just nothing happens. There is no background task that is running. I already tried googling the problem, but ofcourse no hits yet.
    I also asked my colleagues at work and they haven't had an issue with it either.
    I'm pretty much clueless what's causing this at the moment, if anyone has an idea what it could be I'd be greatful for any input.

    Have you tried?

    SFC Command - Run in Windows 10 - Windows 10 Forums

    Try Repairs section in this utility then:

    Tweaking.com - Windows Repair

    Hi there

    I always click 'Run', type in 'regedit' and then click OK followed by Yes to the UAC prompt.
    The Registry Editor then opens up.

    Thanks for the suggestion but I'm not completely stupid :)
    I work as a PC Technician so I know what commands to run to open anything Windows related.

    TairikuOkami I'll try your suggestion, didn't know that tweaking.com would work on Windows 10 already.

    Nothing helps. Ran sfc /scannow and Tweaking.com, still having the same problem.
    I also noticed if I try to install CCleaner for example, that program isn't opening either?

    I don't see where it says it supports Windows 10 on the tweaking.com web site.

    Obviously their webmaster does not keep up. v3.3.0 - Program now supports Windows 10.

    I was having problems with a install of Windows 10TP (Not the same problem as you) and a reinstall over 10 fixed my problem.

    @Winuser: Win 10TP?

    I've tried creating a new user, this does not solve the issue.
