I think I've discovered an XP Registry bug. Open Registry Editor. Search for a GUID or any other data type that you've never searched for before. Adjust the proper settings. The Registry does not find a thing. It's there, but the Registry doesn't know it. Now, repeat the process and search for any data that you know Registry Editor has found during one of your past searches. It finds it within seconds. It appears the search algorithm is flawed.

I've never seen this, and I've searched for GUIDs *many* times, mostly CLSIDs and AppIDs. Perhaps you could define what "Adjust the proper settings" means?

Sure. It means input your desired data in the Find what: box and check any desired boxes in the Find dialog box.

Registry search failure that i know of is: Regedit.exe can't search the 'Data' of Binary or DWORD values.
these failure exist since win9x and MS never bothered to fix it for XP.
