    Migwiz Deleted From Registry ( GeekSquad)

    Long story short, the idiots at the Best Buy I go to deleted one of the migwiz files in my registry. They were just doing a casual checkup type service. My desktop was fine, I just wanted it checked. Free too.

    Anyways. I'm not having any issues so far, but I'm guessing I will eventually.

    I have no idea which entry they deleted. Once again, because they're idiots.

    Anyone know what I should do? I don't know a safe, working registry scanner/fix.
    I don't know where to download migwiz, or if I need to regedit.

    They tried blaming me, but I know they're lying because I only bought my pc a week ago or so and I've never opened regedit. I know for fact.

    What operating system? My laptop (Win 8.1) has only one Migwiz file in the registry. It is associated with Windows Easy Transfer. Unless you use that feature (likely a very low probability), I don't see how you'd ever have a problem or even know a file was missing.

    Does your receipt show what cleansing software was run? ComboFix? JRT? Rkill? Registry cleaner? How did you discover MigWiz was gone?
    I'd like to learn from your experience.

Is a Registry Key a File?
I have a shortcut to a control panel item that sits on the desktop. The target of this shortcut is a registry key that looks like {BA126ADB.......}. Is the key considered to be a "file" by W8.1? Can I substitute a hard link to this registry key by using MKLINK? thanks!
