After the Windows 10 1511 Update, Regedit stops working when the Find command is used. Task Manager shows Regedit is running, but the utility never ends. It appears to be in a loop. When you cancel Regedit, a message displays there was a problem and it restarts the utility. This problem is occurring on both of my Windows 10 Pro 1511 PCs. I renamed Regedit in Windows folder, and I replaced it with the one in Windows.old folder. That seems to fix the problem. At least, Regedit does not hang on a Find.
I am concerned the previous version of Regedit may not be fully compatible with the one in Win 10 Update 1511. Can anyone shed light on this?
Update: Cumulative Update for Windows 10 Version 1511 (KB3124200) did not fix the problem. Regedit still loops on a "Find".
Update: Cumulative Update for Windows 10 Version 1511 OS Build 10586.122 (KB3140743) did not fix the problem. Regedit still loops on a "Find".
Windows 10 Anniversary Update Version 14393.51 fixed the problem. The newly updated RegeditI finally shows the registry key which caused the 1511 Regedit to hang on "Find" command. In my case, it was a USB key with weird characters that caused the problem.
