Windows 10: Deleted wrong registry keys

    Deleted wrong registry keys


    Just upgraded to Win10 from 7 and didn't create a restore point before I started to fix a network adapter problem. Regretting it now.
    Found a solution to my problem that included deleting the Config key in HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Network

    But instead of deleting Config, I deleted ALL the keys. Would someone mind posting an image of the registry keys I'll need to recreate? Not the filters. I managed to leave them unharmed.
    Thanks much!

    Time to do a repair install. Everyone's keys are going to be different, because the hardware is not going to be the same as on your machine.

    In that case, you probably have not taken the ownership of the key and therefore you should not be able to remove anything really needed. Have you tried Network Reset and Network Troubleshoot?

    This will not be helpful, it is more an expanding on @bro67's post.

    I've made some screenshots of my registry to show how it looks like on my system.

    Just restore your backup image. Hopefully you kept your backups current.

    Thanks everyone. As soon as bro67 replied I went ahead and started a re-install. Let it run overnight. Woke up this morn to a working computer. My luck was much better than the fist install attempt. It didn't work out well and that's what I was worried about this time. I appreciate your responses. And I've created a restore point!

    Restore will back up your system files so might have worked in this case but you need to actually backup your drive so you wouldn't have to reinstall software or programs. I personally have restore turned off and have Macrium auto backup my hard drive twice a week. Never worry about anything getting messed up ever again.

    I would recommend another way for a backup, restore points more often than not fail to work properly.
