    I am not sure if you did this to your registry. Any registry cleaning may and most likely will show many entries that should be deleted during a registry scan. Unfortunately, this will type of scan will also highlight system registry entries and deleting them will result in a sfc /scannow negative result for which there is no recovery to positive result no matter how many times you run the command.

    Even MS has issued warnings at times about the over use of registry cleaning utility programs. I could easily just as well suspect an app like CCleaner might also nuke something important in 10 since that was written for the older XP, Vista, 7 days.

    At one time I had one where you could browse the entire registy without opening the regedit tool for manually removing entries when found to be no longer connected to anything. The smart moves you can make when things are at their best is 1) see a full system image created and 2) use a working option to see a good backup of the System Registry before getting into things! Have yourself a working "Disaster Recovery Plan" in advance!

    As it currently stands I can browse through internet perfectly fine if I Manually enter the URL of sites I want to go to . The challenge comes when ; for example : I am reading a blog , in the blog there is a link which should lead me to Sky News ( for example) , when I click on this link I get "Bad request" . This happens with all links irrelevant of browser choice

You should find browsing is right back to normal but you will need to re-enter the previously saved if any passwords since the entire history gets wiped clean.
    Thanks for your suggestion ; I Cleaned my history of all browsers , and ran "ipconfig/flushdns"( as admin) . I then restarted Windows , however the issue remains , when I click any external link I get the Same Bad Request page , as shown above

    Never seen any warnings for cleaning Registry from MS . It seems to be commonly recommended in many Anti Virus/ Security Forums - But I will take your word for it

    I would agree , never had problems with it before though - apart from deleting software keys .It may be that Win 10 is more sensitive than Windows 7-8

    Which Program was that , sounds interesting ,However I have yet to fully understand why it is recommended to clean registry after virus/adware/malware cleaning

    Now this is a good point , however what confuses me is that I ran a system re-installation of Windows 10 within Windows 10 - and immediately ran SFC - Yet Files were still corrupted

    OUCH! for sure there! I mentioned those two options from having a similar issue while links generally would open right up when someone posted one. But when running a Bing search for example either the link in the results selected and with one just about every link saw "Bad Request" or a link off of a page in the results was running into this. Generally the browser cache needs cleaning when you are having this type of issue where the flushdns command is used to clear the dns cache.

    The Bad Request or 400 / Bad Request error has more posts then just about anything else on the web. That's a commonly found HTTP status error code. One option applying to IE mostly would be to add these sites into the Trusted sites option by clicking the add site button and manually entering the address. Unchecking the "Show friendly HTTP error messages" check box as well as the "Use HTTP 1.1" box are additional methods for IE.

    Resetting the defaults for each browser might help with the other browsers as well as with IE. You will want to look over the about.com guide about this as well. http://pcsupport.about.com/od/findby...a/400error.htm

    The old Registry Cleaner app going by that name was the one with a view window seen when you first went to start it up. Another rather favored cleaner is the Eusing Registry Cleaner app being another freeware program while avoiding "RegCure" is definitely a recommendation for anyone! As for MS mentioning things that would be under MS Community discussions when getting into conversions with MS people at times as well as having seen a few blogs a number of years back.
