  • Hi NightyPker,

    I have got the message regarding to your issue. I consider you make a mistake when you modify the registry. I would like to suggest copy the code below into notepad and save it as .reg. Then import the file under the path in registry:
    Note: To avoid unexpected error after the registry key change, please backup your registry key first.

  • Hi,

    Thank you for your reply.

    Since System Restore doesn't help for you, we would like to suggest you could boot into WinRE and recovery the system from the installation image.
