    Hello crazyloverd.

    If you have a restore point available that is dated before this happened, then you could do a System Restore to quickly go back to a point in time before this happened to hopefully fix it.

    Hope this helps,
    Shawn

    No I dont have a restore point. I need to know if there is a way to get this back without clean or refresh install. But thanks for the help.

    This may be from a group policy setting. If you like, reset all group policy settings back to default using the method in the tutorial below to see if it is restored afterwards.
