Thank you for your compliment to this community. Although I am relatively new to this forum, but also long been active in the IT environment.
We all know that there is no perfect system and we need to work together when it comes to problems. Whether Microsoft, Apple, or the normal user. We're all in the same boat. The technological age.
We are all different people and have our own views and opinions, but the fact that we can collectively advise to mutually complement each other, bringing us further.
Hey Saammy, I have a couple questions for you (or any other experienced user willing to help). Before changing the registry I made a backup copy for the key with the non working url. Supposing Microsoft should revert to the old domain in the future, can I just import the saved key into the registry and everything will be fine once again?
Also, users who decide to wait for now, sticking with the old url, will they get devices/drivers recognised and updated on their machines, as it was before errors started showing up? Are red marks in Event Viewer the only concern, or is there an actual issue undermining devices installation/update/behavior?
Anyway, the url and solution you kindly provided proved flawless on my system
