    Exactly! And in addition, ask from your friends / colleagues / acquaintances who run any version of Windows 10 to perform a Registry Search for a non-existent value... Because I am 99% sure that this issue is present in 95% of all the systems out there, or that it will appear on them, at some point in time...

    Finally, quite a few times, third-party Registry Editors have been suggested. I do not know how you all feel about this, but personally it does NOT feel good to me, it does NOT feel right to me, to use a third-party tool for an action as FUNDAMENTAL as dealing with the Registry! This is something that it should function perfectly right for the very beginning, which is also the reason why the argument "Windows 10 is still a work in progress, bugs are going to exist / are supposed to exist" does not sound valid to me...
    I mean, how do you screw up the registry editor? Should work without question. And to ad insult to injury, MS wants to tell us:

    "The registry editor has stopped responding we are attempting to find a solution" F@#$@ MS couldn't find the solution to millions of other errors why waste our time, just close and reopen the app, don't Fing waste my time with their silly attempt to find a solution.

    No way am I going to go third-party for this. What's next, a third party NTFS?

    From what I can tell, this is fixed in Insider 14316. Just have to wait for it to roll out in a cumulative update for current build.

    Yes, Microsoft. Wake Up! This is a major problem with the registry crashing. I have done everything suggested in this forum, sfc /scannow, virus scan (Defender, Malwarebytes, Adaware etc), error scanning of my SSD and now I'm sure the problem is in Windows 10. Btw, I have the latest updates as of May 10 2016.

    I have always considered the registry architecture as a stupid solution, error prone and slow to do searches. Now it's here so MS should really make sure this beast is working properly. It's a shame this registry problem has been around for many month now. This is an essential component so it's really bad when this is unstable. Put some clever people to investigate what the problem is. Microsoft is big enough to set aside people to fix this immediately.

    For the longest time, this registry crashing error had been fixed with subsequent updates. However with the update yesterday, it is back again !

    You do have choices thou. If you have a older version of regedit from a image backup, that was working fine, use that one and overwrite your existing version.
    Another choice, is too use a good 3rd party registry program. I have not used Windows regedit in years. I bought Registry Workshop years ago, and still works VERY well for me.

    That's what I ended up doing, thanks for the reply.
    Pretty soon Windows, is gonna have to change the way they name their operating system; "Windows (Version) and Third Party OS...
    Actually some 3rd party registry editors are better than the Windows default editor. :)

    Amazing(ly bad work from Microsoft).
    This thread was starded October 31 and now it's May 18, the following year, and Microsoft hasn't done anything substantial about this.

    I visited their website in order to just report a bug (as I suppose others has aswell) but found out that it isn't really that easy. So I just have to post here instead, vent some of my frustration and just hope that someone (anyone) from or associated with Microsoft reads here from time to time.

    This bug should be very easy to fix (I suppose?) but today I stumbled upon it myself, did some research and saw this thread (and others informing about the same registry bug). On the Microsoft community forums I also found that this problem probably is connected to some flaw in the MS Store (app?). So now I'm using (or actually is kind of forced to use) RegScanner 2.16 from NirSoft instead, when needed but it actually works, and hope and just hope (!) that Microsoft will solve it in an update... sooner rather than later!
