Inside the Command Prompt . Paste this command inside

I've attached four things: two screenshots of the regedit (to fit everything) and both text files created from cmd prmpt.
I hope they're of some use!

In the registry delete the proxyHttp1.1 . Right click on it and choose Delete and press on the Yes button to confirm . Close registry restart and see if your Connection is working.

I deleted it, rebooted, hoped, but no change. You must be as frustrated as I am, if not more so!
Thank you for your perseverance.
Should I try deleting EnableHTTP1_1 as well?
