    I ran that program and now I cannot use regadd. Everything else works.

    However I can use regadd just fine in safe mode.

    Free version is fine. No need to upgrade to pro.

    Posting this 8 months later, Installed UVK for the same reason as mentioned above. Namely, I messed up the registry permissions because tried to enable the Diagnostic Policy Service. In essence v20H2 is a mess of bugs.

    The end result was that it did nothing. My changes to the permissions remained the same.

    Do a Repair Install. Seems like that would fix it with minimal impact to your system. Repair Install Windows 10 with an In-place Upgrade

    Thanks for the advice. After weighing my options, and the time needed on the number of issues to correct, I decided to do a fresh install of 2004 and all the needed apps. Including Windows updates and software installation took less than three hours. Before v20H2 I had v1909 which also functioned superbly for my needs.

    Frankly my experience with OS repairs is negative.

    My experience has been just the opposite, nothing but positive. I did one for 20H2 on the evening of the 8th and it went great with minimal impact to tweaks and installed software on my system. I've also done it with 1903 and 1909 and they were also positive experiences for me.

    Never had to do a clean reinstall yet

    30+ years experience thought me otherwise. Specifically referring to the value of time spent.

    I like to experiment which is why I try different methods. The journey is (almost) as important to me as the destination.

    I do too at times, but not in the middle of work and that's what counts. . . . getting the work done uninterrupted by silly bugs.

    Here are the list of problems I noted before reverting to 2004

    Version 20H2 - firewall crashes - DPS disabled - LAN network is not working - Diagnostic policy service cannot start because access is denied - After each reboot windows rejects Irfanview as default photo editor and Firefox as the default browser, so I was was forced to uninstall Edge - The unchangeable start menu charcoal background is disturbing.
