Installed the registry tweak (msc) and continue to get the same error message.

Try run (Win+R): devmgr.msc
Or right click computer - manage (is this the one you have tried?)

Edited: not in cmd but with win+R

If I run devmgmt.msc Device Manager will open. Also, if I click on Device Manager in Control Panel it will open. The issue is right clicking Computer from the dektop and start menu.

Yes yes, my bad, you got the correct one. I will see if I can find anything new when I start up my PC.

In the meanwhile check the shortcut in start menu please.

Well, here is one problem. You are having issue with Computer Management and not Device Manager.

Try (if fail move to next):
Win+R - compmgmt.msc
Browse to C:\Windows\System32 and double click compmgmt.msc

See if it is the same, or working. I will search some while you do the test.

Right clicking Computer > Manage in the start menu will not open Device Manager. Of course when I click on Properties for Computer in start menu the System item in Contol Panel opens which contains the link to Device Manager and that works OK. The sole problem is right clicking Computer > Manage.

Computer Management opens when compmgmt.msc is run and it also opens by double clicking compmgmt.msc in System32.
