    I just upgraded to 10586.14 from 10240 via Windows Update, it was already 10586.14 after the install and didn't require Windows updates and I am facing the same problem of it hanging during a search and if I cancel, it will say Registry Editor has stopped responding and restarting. Before upgrading, I tested regedit.exe to make sure the search works and it did. Anyways, before coming to this thread, I did a Google search on Registry Editor Not Responding tenforums and it took me to the Microsoft forums at the following thread:
    Regedit.exe search crashes after upgrade to 10586 - Microsoft Community

    AndersWillhelmsson's replyon November 27, 2015 appears to be correct in mentioning:

    "I have the same problems with Search in Regedit, it just hangs while searching, and then when I click Cancel, it crashes, and restarts.

    But I don't even have the key you mention: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\Setup\Upgrade

    But when I start a Search standing on some key Later than the HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\Setup\ the Search works and ends normally.

    So it's anyway somewhere before that key the problem exists."

    I do have the HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\Setup\Upgrade key but I started searching from the key immediately after it HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\Software and it finishes successfully. Before the hanging, it did find keys before that which was fine.

    I tried searching from the key immediately after HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\ControlSet001\Control\WPN\{577289b6-6e75-11df-86f8-18a905160fe0} which is HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\ControlSet001\Enum and it still hangs which atleast means on my system, it's not HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\ControlSet001\Control\WPN\{577289b6-6e75-11df-86f8-18a905160fe0}.

    I also tried searching "Select" which searches up to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\Select and it didn't hang at all and only hanged and crashed after that point.

    Just curious but how did people figure exactly which key causes it?

    No, the solution is to grab regedit from C:\Windows.old assuming you have build 10240 in that directory and use that version. The 10586 version of regedit.exe will have the problem no matter what as it can't handle registry keys that are longer than a 255 characters. Like the thread said, you don't even have to fix regedit.exe, just use the Nirsoft Regscanner tool here to search the registry and then once it finds what you want, click on it and it will open that key with regedit.exe
    RegScanner: Alternative to RegEdit find/search/scan of Windows

    Your solution is almost correct...
    takeown /f "C:\Windows\regedit.exe" /r

    rename the above file and then copy the regedit.exe I provided in the next post to C:\Windows

    Get it here and place in C:\Windows, you might want to backup the existing regedit.exe there first by renaming it.
