Trying to connect to a network source may sound easy but it can’t help to encounter a problem once in awhile. Your network connection may not be properly configured or there is technical failure. Other times, there is no connectivity on your end. These errors are common examples of network error. It appears when there is something wrong during connection hence it cannot reach its end source. Still, these errors indicate the nature of the issue to help you resolve it.

List of the common network errors:

  • A Network Cable Is Unplugged
  • IP Address Conflict Address Already in Use
  • The Network Path Cannot Be Found
  • Duplicate Name Exists on the Network

Its a Virus Infection mate and from all the times i tried to fix it i had no success wat so ever, the only way I could fix it was to reformat the drive sorry 4 the bad news

What causes Cannot Connect Network Registry when running (regedit) Registry Editor!!

Seeing a network error while you are in time constraints can be annoying but there are still solutions to these errors. Once an error message appears, you can click on the Diagnose option using the Windows wizard to run a diagnosis of the problem. After several minutes, Windows will show you the cause of the problem while also providing the right solutions. However, there are times when Windows may not give you all the answers so you need to fix it manually. First, you need to change your adapter settings. Look for the settings in the Network and Sharing center. Second, reset the TCP/IP. If changing the adapter setting, you can change the TCP/IP. Third is to uninstall network adapters so you can scan and apply any changes in the hardware.

Windows 10 Registry Editor - regedit.exe

Mine's fine on latest build. Registry issue with new 10586 build. - Windows 10 Forums

I recall one person used regedit from a prior build. There are free registry editors around other than MS's and have the equivalent of an 'address bar' which I really like. I don't think it was resolved for them when I read it.

Runs well. Runs well. It will search and find the first few instances of an item, then it just stays in the "search" window forever.

I have just recently upgraded to Win10 Home. When I hit "cancel", it says that regedit.exe has stopped working, then it restarts regedit.exe. O&O Redgedit (freeware); Regmagik RegmagiK Software | The Joy of Personal Computing

A few others have reported issues with regedit searches in this forum- worth reading that thread.

After the upgrade, I did a clean install. zaqxsw said:

[SOLVED] Cannot access registry editor - regedit.exe

press the Window + R keys in the run window type regedit.exe, this works for me.
I tried several things found on various forums, with no results, such as:
- deleting regedit.exe and having it restored by the system.
- checking the setting of administrative templates using gpedit ("Prevent Access To Registry Editing Tools" is set to Disabled)

I don't know what to try next. Have you tried using the Run window? The thing is that nothing happens, not even an error message.

My problem is that I cannot open Windows regedit.exe. When I double click (even as an admin), nothing happens.

missing regedit (registry editor) for home 7 premium

What operating system are you running?

It's possible that regedit.exe was infected and quarantined by your AV.

I'm trying to run the combofix program and, find that my (so says a combofix message box) regedit is "missing"....

where can I download one?

Are you trying to run Combofix due to a recent infection, or do you suspect that you are infected? If either of the above, I'd recommend going through the READ & RUN ME FIRST.

Registry editor wants to change RegEdit from %1 to %1 %* - WinPatrol notification

The only thing left seems to be that WinPatrol comes up frequently with a dialogue box that states that Registry Editor wants to change the file extension from 'Regedit.exe %1' to 'Regedit.exe %1 %*'.

I have a similar problem to the one that was discussed in this thread:

It seems that the solution there was to run ComboFix but I am hesitant to do so on my own after reading several warnings not to do so on the web. My desktop background and screensaver are back to normal - at one point the tabs to set these were missing from the interface but after running Malwarebites they are back and working. After I click no, another box appears with a similar message but no program name (blank), just that it wants to change from %1 /s to %1 %*.

AVG caught part of the infection and Malwarebites more of it. Here is what lead up to this:

I had a virus of some kind replace the desktop background with a 'your computer is infected, please download anti-spyware' or something similar and also install a screensaver that replicated the blue screen 'windows has encountered an error and has been shut down'.

Solved: registry editor error: registry editing has been disabled by your administrat

Registry editor for a copy of windows that is not running???

I am often removing spyware and trojans from hard drives that I have taken out of their PCs. Is there a method or program that will allow me to edit the registry of a system that is not 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. I appreciate any help with this!

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.

Registry Limit, even after running registry cleaner

A number of errors were removed. On startup, I receive the following Error message."System has reached the maximum size allowed for the system part of theregistry. I am not sure what information would be relevant in this case, but I will note that I am using an nForce chipset, since I read some posts regarding old nForce sets and registry problemsThanks in advance,JaeganFinal Note: Registry Mechanic reveals 991 errors in my temp files/shortcut area. In fact, I never had this problem previously, even after running the computer for one year and a half before reinstalling.I am really in the dark as to what to do here.

Have you ran the 2 below programs? From what I have heard, this is an inordinate registry size. Additional storage requests will be ignored."Having had resgistry issues before, I ran a number o registry cleaners to try and fix the problem. I did fresh reinstall about two months ago, so I don't think this is a build up problem.

Unfortunately, the error messages persist, and my registry size is still what it was.My registry size (as found under Windows/System32/Config/Config is 192 megabytes. All of them are under system volume information / restore.  Removing some restore points removed the errors, but the registry size remains the same.

Connect Network Registry Error

I have it connected to my home network and I have an IP address and I'm able to connect to the management console of it from the XP machine. The Windows 2000 machine boots as far as the Windows log in screen. Close this message, and try again."

Both machine at connected to different domains if that makes any difference.
I have a Windows 2000 machine which I can't log into so I'm trying to access the registry from another machine (XP machine).

When I have the XP machine on my work network I'm able to connect to other machines registries but when on my home network the box never comes up when I choose "connect network registry"

Any help would be great.

The problem is when I try to connect to the registry I receive the error:

"The program cannot open the required dialog box
because no locations can be found.

Solved: Cant' connect over network with remote registry, or anything else for that ma

You have to be running XP Pro. I have file sharing enabled on all of them and that works fine but why doesnt everything else? You can use any flavor of VNC and connect to the systems that way. any ideas?



The Best Registry editor???

I wanna know how to get rid of it. One of the malware experts here might help if you post a HijackThis log.

I have this annoying site that is redirecting me to porn sites.

I am guessing using a good Registry Editor will do it?

It'll probably take more than a registry editor.

Registry Editor bug?

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?

Okay, after some investigation, I believe I've found the problem. Edit: Scans were inconclusive.. so, it's something else. If anyone has any ideas, I'm serious, I need help.

Suffice to say, it became corrupted after a moment or two. As I thought, the problem is 100% the registry editor, or whatever is corrupting it. Feels like I may get my machine working right, yet!

My computer has several of the symptoms associated with the Brontok worm, such as making the regedit file inaccessible. I know there's something wrong with regedit, though. Now, the solution may take some doing to find..

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.

Alright, this has been persisting for weeks; my games seem to refuse to work properly unless I rename / delete / remove Registry Editor. I'm going to try to determine how to remove it on my own, and do some more investigation. I removed the 'original' registry editor, and replaced it with an 'incorrup...

Registry Editor

They could just be the shortcut targets for icons you have on your desktop for messengers or website-specific things you use often. Follow the instructions carefully, and if you use HJT be sure to close unnecessary processes , especially messengers and browsers.before running HJT, and post your log as indicated in the Sec-HJT forum.

Hikey Current User-Software-Microsoft-Windows-Current Version-Internet Settings-Zone Map-Domains.

Anyone know what they are? If you are having problems as a result, they could indicate spyware. You can find out for sure by downloading and using the tools found in the Security-Hijack this forum. This seems to have a list of dot-coms.

Registry Editor and XP Pro

I have made numerous attempts and enquiries to solve this to no avail, even MS knowledgebase (ha ha! ) doesn't seem to have heard of it. When I try to access the registry in any fashion I get the message ' Registry editing has been disabled by the administrator'. I AM the administrator and I never ( knowingly ) disabled registry access.

Any suggestions as this is a big problem at this stage.

I am running XP pro but am unable to run the registry editor.

From the `Registry Editor`

Can anyone tell me what this file is and how I might get rid of that infernal reminder by the Registry Editor.The Brown Rock

Type it into google there is a number of sites that you can download the missing DLL file or how you can delete it.

For more tnan a year now at startup I get the following message every time, and most annoying I might add. "Registry Editor - Cannot importC:WINDOWS\sp.dll: Error opening the file or file system error." I am of the opinion that this first came about as a result of deleting adaware material and was left with this as a consiquence.It does not appear to have any effect on the workings of my computer, but how I hate that `BING` as a reminder on startup.
