How to avoid recursion when searching in Windows Registry?

Post by sbf » Mon May 21, 2018 9:02 am

Search the Registry via e.g. Registry Workshop in a sandbox.
The search will never end.
And the result list will show like this:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\...
HKEY_USERS\Sandbox_1\machine\...
HKEY_USERS\Sandbox_1\user\Sandbox_1\machine\...
HKEY_USERS\Sandbox_1\user\Sandbox_1\user\Sandbox_1\machine\...
HKEY_USERS\Sandbox_1\user\Sandbox_1\user\Sandbox_1\USER\Sandbox_1\machine\...
HKEY_USERS\Sandbox_1\user\Sandbox_1\user\Sandbox_1\USER\Sandbox_1\user\Sandbox_1\machine\...
...

Is there a way to avoid such recursions?
I tried blocking Registry Workshop from reading the Sandboxie hive branches. I tried these:
HKEY_USERS\Sandbox_*
HKEY_USERS\Sandbox_
HKEY_USERS\Sandbox_(Exact Name)
But none works.
