Quick solution:
Do a System Restore to a point before you made the registry changes.

There may be a way to get the "Speakers" to work at the same time as the "Stereo Mix", but as you have read in that link (the replies at the bottom), that fix caused your symptoms for other people. That fix works for some but not for others.

Do the System Restore, then try a different solution.
