    You do know that .reg file is only suitable for Creators Update (1703) don't you? We do not yet know which version the OP has.

    I gave the correct registry key for all versions in post #6 - along with a warning that malware may be what removed it in the first place.

    That .reg adds the one key I posted about earlier. I'm curious as to how it went missing - it shouldn't have. Had you done anything that may explain it? Used a registry cleaner, a tweaking tool, or tried installing another AV?

    Anyway, glad to hear it's all working now.



    PS: system restore can be a bit 'iffy' at times. Better to make a system image. Macrium Reflect get's a lot of recommendations here.

    David.
    Glad your issue is resolved.

    Run SFC Command in Windows 10

    If System Restore failed, do a sfc/scannow for corrupt files. You may need System Restore at a later date and/or have corrupt files.
