    Cannot open files from other websites or emails

    When I attempt to open a URL from another site or from an email, I get an error window that reads: "an invalid value for registry." Also, sometimes I get a window with a message that reads about an illegal activity being attempted regarding a Key designated for removal. Can anyone help me solve these problems? Windows 10 has been an unmitigated disaster for an operationing system.

    Can I ask do you run any kind of system optimization tools? There is a very long lists of these products making the rounds. Items like driver updates, registry cleaners, tools to speed things up, system tweakers, etc.

    What browser are you using? Are you using any extensions? Have you tried clearing out cache, history and temp files?

    Have you tried an alternate browser to determine if this is a browser issue or under lying Windows? (Agree, it should just work.)

    With some browsers, like old IE and Chrome you can actually reset browser. Have you tried this?

    While I'm hesitant to travel on internet without AV, have you tried one of these known "Good" url's with AV deactivated. You really need to trust site as I don't want Gremlins creeping in.
