  • Hi,


    I have the following suggestions for you.


    Modify the Registry


    1. Click the Start Button, type regedit in the "Start Search" text box and then press ENTER.

    2. Navigate to the following key:




    3. Right click the {4D36E965-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318} entry, choose "Export", select Desktop in the Save in box and type backup in File Name. Click Save.


    Please Note: The backup file is on the Desktop and named backup.reg. We can simply restore the registry by double-clicking the backup.reg file.


    4. Highlight this key ({4D36E965-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318}), on the right pane, and then check if Upperfilters and Lowerfilters value are present. If so, please right click on the values and select "Delete" to remove them.

    5. Restart the computer


    At same time, I would like to share the following article for you.
