    regedit search broken again 14393.105


    Just noticed regedit search is broken again like it was before. If you search for something that is not found it hangs.
    I tried regseeker to search and it also hung at 97%.

    Not here Ztruker. Finished OK. Just quick question: where do you see %

    Edit: never mind the % question - it's from regseeker
    And I'm on Insider, latest

    Edit2: Checked on AU .105 and it works OK too.

    Yup, just tried it on IP 14915 and it works okay there. Anniversary + updates 14393.105 does not work, goes non responsive and you can't even Cancel it. Have to kill it via Task Manager.

    Working fine here on 14393.105. So many random bugs cropping up on Windows 10 since the Anniversary update though.
    It looks like a case of rushing it out to meet the date

    I'll try the DISM/SFC stuff and see what happens.

    regedit search is working fine for me with 14393.105. Tried with search terms that weren't found and also that were found (using F3 to continue searching till the end), and they both worked as expected.

    Hmmmm, could I have a corrupted registry? When I get time, I'll try it in a Virtual Machine.

    Edit: I tried it again and let it run, took almost 7 minutes then it finally completed with not found.
