Curious when I do a search in the registry using the find command it seems as thought it does not inform me when the search is complete could this be a windows 10 upgrade issue. or a lenovo issue both my desktop and laptop do the same thing. this usually only happens when what I am looking for is not present anyway.

At times the find will take a while - and with each subsequent release of Windows the registry keeps getting bigger and bigger.

Does it tell you when it finds things?

How long do you let it run?  Does the Find dialog continue to say "Searching the registry"?

 

What version of W10 are you running?

Run the winver command from the run dialog to find out (we'll need the exact OS build number).

 

I'm running build 11099 and just searched for a nonsense string and it took a very, very long time.

Mine has been running for 20 minutes or so.  I'll check back later to let you know if mine stopped or not.

As of now, it's earned a report to the Insider folks.

if i know its not in the registry it will keep going. but if I click cancel before it ends it will get a box registry has stopped working. If it is something I know is in there it will find every string but if it has nothing left to find it will not end with a dialog box stating the registry is done searching so not sure. thank you for your input and am looking foward to hearing results.

My copy never responded (after an hour or so).

I then filed a report with the Insiders Feedback app.

 

I then restarted and let the system install build 11102

Attempting the registry search now........

Search finished for me.  Less than 19 minutes (didn't catch when it actually stopped, just when I came back to the computer and found it done)
