    Can't open Folders Directories Drives (Corrupted Registry)


    Hello Everyone,
    Today I purchased a software called WinTuning 8 and it has an option for editing context menus, so I have a problem of huge right click buttons which I don't use it at all, so I DELETED EVERYTHING FOR CONTEXT MENUS using the application even the system ones which one of them open the folders! I thought the context menu editor in software just for my apps (Without System Menus)! Anyway I fixed that in "Files" option which I took my brother's system
    Code:
    HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\*
    registry and imported it to my PC and files are working, so I think to do the same for "Folders", "Directories", and "Drives" but I don't know their registry locations, so any help would be appreciated!

    BTW The software doesn't have working Context Menu Restore Option

    Sorry for the title I made it as small as I can

    Regards,
    addas

    It would be easier to use a Restore Point. One thing System Protection/Restore does well is back up and restore the Registry. That's where all the context menu settings are.

    Hope you learned a lesson not to use those "Miracle programs".

    You are welcome, Programs like that promise Heaven but deliver Hell. To somebody that didn't deal with them and did not see aftermath of their "work", they may seem like a good deal. Keeping OS clean and upgrading or overclocking PC are only things that can keep it running good or speed it up.
