Windows 10’s Registry Editor finally has an Address Bar

Q: Windows 10’s Registry Editor finally has an Address Bar

Microsoft is adding a much-needed feature to Windows 10?s Registry Editor: an Address Bar. The new feature was added with Windows 10 Build 14942, which is only available to Windows Insiders in the Fast Ring for now. With the Address Bar in the Registry Editor, users can simply paste an address into the address bar, and the Registry Editor will navigate them to that address. Currently, users have to manually navigate the Registry Editor, which can be quite annoying at times. But with the new address, things are a lot easier.

For example, if you are trying to navigate to HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\AppSync, you can simply copy the address, and paste it into the address bar to get there rather than having to manually go and find it on the Registry Editor.

Obviously, this is available to Windows Insiders only for now ? but it?ll be coming to all Windows 10 users with a major new update next year. The update, which is code named Redstone 2 is also expected to introduce a number of other improvements throughout the operating system.

Preferred Solution: Windows 10’s Registry Editor finally has an Address Bar

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

my operating system is windows 7 and i have a large problem as every single programe is set to open with windows regestry editor and every single icon has changed to the windows registry editor icon . is there any way to change the programes back to normal?
 

A:everything is trying to open with windows registry editor need help !

Oh dear, that doesn't sound very nice.

The first thing I'd suggest is trying a system restore. If that doesn't work however try downloading these two registry fixes. One is for shortcut files and the other is for Executable program files. You'll need to unzip the files and double click them to merge into your registry. You'll be prompted for confirmation to do so.

After that restart and see whether it sorts itself out.

I am often removing spyware and trojans from hard drives that I have taken out of their PCs. I use an IDE to USB adapter to do this and it makes it easy to remove pests that are otherwise running in memory when the operating system is running. I would like to be able to also edit the registry for that hard drive while the OS isn't running so that the "Bad Guys" can't replace themselves right after I have deleted their entries.

Is there a method or program that will allow me to edit the registry of a system that is not running?

I appreciate any help with this!

I'll cut to the point. I got a virus from a file I downloaded from Kazaa Lite. AVG Anti-Virus Resident Shield did not stop the virus from infecting my system, which upset me a great deal. So, enough chatter. Let's get to diagnosing and resolving.
Symptoms

- Task manager and registry editor close immediately (less than one second) after they are opened
- Task manager and registry editor both open just fine in Safe Mode
- Task manager works fine when I copy taskmgr.exe to taskmgr.com and run the .com file. Same goes for regedit.exe and the regedit.com clone
- Experiencing the following problems as reported on the Symantec Security Response report on W32.Spybot.Worm:

Creates and shares a folder on the KaZaA file-sharing network, by adding the following registry value:

"dir0"="012345:<configurable path>"

to the registry key:

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\KAZAA\LocalContent

Copies itself to the configured path as filenames designed to trick other users into downloading and executing the worm.

Methods Proven Ineffective to Resolve Problem

- Found and deleted all files created in the aforementioned generated Kazaa share folder, with the help of AVG Anti-Virus

Alright, this has been persisting for weeks; my games seem to refuse to work properly unless I rename / delete / remove Registry Editor. Yet, even after I do this, it re-creates it after a few minutes, and makes the game crash. (Well, okay, I'm 90% certain that's what's making it crash, but I know regedit has something to do with it.)

Anyone have any clue what I can do to make it either work right or be permanently deactivated?
 

A:Registry Editor bug?

Okay, after some investigation, I believe I've found the problem. My computer has several of the symptoms associated with the Brontok worm, such as making the regedit file inaccessible. I'm going to try to determine how to remove it on my own, and do some more investigation. Feels like I may get my machine working right, yet!
Edit: Scans were inconclusive.. so, it's something else. I know there's something wrong with regedit, though. If anyone has any ideas, I'm serious, I need help.

As I thought, the problem is 100% the registry editor, or whatever is corrupting it. I removed the 'original' registry editor, and replaced it with an 'incorruptable' one. Suffice to say, it became corrupted after a moment or two. However, I was able to do something I haven't been able to do for days: I managed to change the resolution of an online game without it "Fatal Error-ing". So, I've determined the problem. Now, the solution may take some doing to find..

Hello,
Does windows registry keep my privacy or it just stores and never delete?

I want to get rid of all traces of email (hotmail) and programs that I have uninstalled via registry editor. But I really don't know where to start.
 

A:Registry Editor

The only way to do that is to wipe the hard drive and reinstall Windows. It would take longer than a human lifetime to search all the registry entries, and it would also be impossible to remove unused ones without damaging the system. All registry cleaners cause system damage.

There should be no "privacy" issues because you should simply not allow others to use your machine or account. In any case, all the files that you have ever used on the machine are still on the hard drive until overwritten, even if you have deleted them. It is impossible to insure privacy when physical access to the machine is possible, short of encryption.

Ok, so for starters, I have a 60GB SSD that I have my operating system on and I have a 1TB regular Hard Drive that I wanted to have all my basic programs on. Once the operating system/drivers/etc were installed on the SSD drive I changed the registry so that the default filed installation location was the 1TB drive instead (because some files/programs don't ask what location you'd like to install them to). Afterwards I restarted the computer after installing a program. Now tons of my system 32 system files/programs wont open even though they're there. I get an error message saying "Windows could not find 'C:\Windows\system32\regedt32.exe' Please make sure you typed the name correctly, and try again."

This is the second time it has done this. The first time I had installed a few more programs before restarted so I thought maybe somehow I got a virus that disabled some of my registry permissions. But all this stuff I can't open IS still there, but because I changed this the ProgramDefDir registry now it can't find this stuff. After this first time when I thought it was a virus I just went ahead and reformatted and reinstalled windows, but I noticed as soon as I restarted after changing the registry the way I wanted it before, the same problem occured.

I discovered "RegSeeker" years ago and it was a much better tool than the "RegEdit" software that comes with Windows, but over the years the software has become more and more annoying and less and less functional, to the point that I can't stand using it anymore and am looking for something better.
 
The primary reason I use RegSeeker is to do manual uninstallation and deletion of registry keys.  It's primary strength is that you can search the entire registry for a keyword (for example "TechSmith", or a CLSID number) and RegSeeker will dump all of the search results into a single screen so that you can then pick and choose which results to pay attention to and delete, or ignore.
 
I'm looking for something else that does this, but without the bugginess and the clutter and the clunkiness.

I keep getting a prompt saying, "Cannot import C:/moo.reg. The specified file is not a registry script. You can only import registry files." I also cannot use my Lexmark x73 printer/scanner/copier...it says I cannot enable the scanner. I have uninstalled and reinstalled it but I keep getting the same problem.

Hi,
My problem is with the registry editor. I recently uninstalled a game. I reinstalled a bit later, but stopped before the installation was completed. Unfortunately, everytime I put in the game cd, it asks if I would like to completely uninstall all components. I tried going to add/remove programs, but that won't remove the game either. Bty, the game is Star wars battlefront 2. Anyway, I read on the internet that I need to go to the uninstall in the HKEY LOCAL MACHINE and find the game because the add/remove program list is made from this list in the uninstall. However, i cannot find the name of the game in the uninstall list. I don't understand why. Please help or suggest another way to get rid this game off my computer so i can reinstall it.

Whenever I try to open my regedit I get the following error message .. "This Operation has been cancelled due to restrictions in effect on this computer. Please contact your system adminstrator". Also my internet is extremely slow. I am the only user on this PC. So I have the Admin rights. I tried going to gpedit.msc and tried enabling the regedit from there. But it didnt work.

I think it is a virus or some malware.. Is there anyone to help me.
