Windows 7: Tuneup, that went wrong

Tuneup, that went wrong

Greetings.
I have been running some time with this values from a file called "speed up Windows 7.reg"

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\Explorer]
"NoLowDiskSpaceChecks"=dword:00000001
"LinkResolveIgnoreLinkInfo"=dword:00000001
"NoResolveSearch"=dword:00000001
"NoResolveTrack"=dword:00000001
"NoInternetOpenWith"=dword:00000001

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Control Panel\Desktop]
"AutoEndTasks"="1"
"HungAppTimeout"="1000"
"MenuShowDelay"="0"
"WaitToKillAppTimeout"="2000"
"LowLevelHooksTimeout"="1000"

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\ControlSet002\Control]
"WaitToKillServiceTimeout"="1000"

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\ControlSet001\Control]
"WaitToKillServiceTimeout"="1000"

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control]
"WaitToKillServiceTimeout"="1000"

[HKEY_USERS\S-1-5-19\Control Panel\Desktop]
"AutoEndTasks"="1"
"HungAppTimeout"="1000"
"MenuShowDelay"="0"
"WaitToKillAppTimeout"="2000"

[HKEY_USERS\S-1-5-20\Control Panel\Desktop]
"AutoEndTasks"="1"
"HungAppTimeout"="1000"
"MenuShowDelay"="0"
"WaitToKillAppTimeout"="2000"


It seems now that I have added a 3Tbyte HDD, my SSD is sometime loosing data when shutting the PC down.

But I can't remember the default values for all these settings. Can somebody please write then, or make me a .regfile with default values?

TIA.

First get rid of speed up Windows it's not needed.
Then run SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker see if that helps.

Yeah those "tunning" things often cause more harm than good and more if they are registry based!

EDIT:
Found some, here are mine:

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control]
"WaitToKillServiceTimeout"="1200"

[HKEY_USERS\S-1-5-20\Control Panel\Desktop]
"MenuShowDelay"="400"

[HKEY_USERS\S-1-5-20\Control Panel\Desktop]
"MenuShowDelay"="400"
I cannot find the rest of the keys LOL so you *might* have to delete them but wait for a second or third reply more

Lets stop kidding ourselves. Once one of those goofy tune up programs has chewed on Windows 7 it is all over except a Clean Install. You could spend a half a lift time rope a doping the registry trying to fix it.

It is not a program that I ran! It is "only" a small .reg file that I installed. It has the values from #0. No program was running to "speed up" my Windows 7.

Thanks #3, I'll try to type them in and see if that is enough.

In my opinion running a tune up program and let it change things is no different than you taking parts of the tune up program and making the changes manually yourself. One assumes when one makes changes to AAA that it only effect AAA. That is not always true. It could of made changes to many things that one would not be aware of. Many things could depend on AAA working properly or they won't work properly. What tune up program are you referring to?

Before making any changes like this "tuneup", or anything you are not 100% sure of
  • Backup the registry
  • Create a System Restore Point
  • Create a System Backup Image
System Backup Images should be created periodically for the best recovery ability!

A System Backup Image is a FULL "system snapshot".
Registry Backups and Restore Points are only a PARTIAL "system snapshot".

I agree you should System Restore to before you made the bad decision.

Then work through the Troubleshooting Steps for Windows 7 to possibly resolve your performance issues, especially the Clean Boot, comb the logs, use System Resources.

How is Ultimate activated?

I did make a backup of the reg.database before adding the values, but that backup is now over 6 month old, and a lot of other things has happend since then. That is why I can't restore back to before I doubbelclicked on the .reg-file with the values in #0.
It has worked fine and stable for 6 month, just after adding a 3 Tbyte HDD it is giving me some troubble.

It is NOT a program that I have been running. It is a simple text-file called "speed up Windows 7.reg" that I doubbleclicked on to import the values in the reg.database. All I need is the default value from a "normal" Windows 7 x64 to restore it back to default values.
