Do you still have three users?

The only one that should work is the third user - the other 2 users (original and 2nd user) were corrupted. The first when you made the registry edit error and the 2nd when you copied that error from teh 1sy user profile to the 2nd user profile.

Which user are you logged on when you are trying this?

I was using the copied corrupted profile. I deleted the original corrupted profile. I'll try again with a new user account.

reg query HKCU
reg query HKCU\Software
reg query HKCU\Software\Microsoft
reg query HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows
reg query HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion
reg query HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer

Please do and stay on that user until the problem is resolved.

DO NOT copy anything to the new user
