"Registry" process in Process Explorer


  • In Process Explorer I noticed a process called "Registry". I looked it up, and understand that it is a new process in Windows 10, used to store elements of the registry for quick access (something like that). What I don't understand is that in Process Explorer, on the same line, under "Path", it says "(A device attached to the system is not functioning.)" What does this mean? I am not aware of any non-functioning devices, and nothing is flagged in Device Manager. Is it something to be concerned about?

    "Registry" also shows up in Task Manager, under "Windows processes", but with no such message.
