Basically i need everything you guys see about the following registry files:
MigrateProxy
ProxyEnable
ProxyServer
ProxyOverride
ProxyHttp1.1
I need all the values (binary and/or string)!
The files are located in HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings

Why did you delete these Registry entries?
Why did you delete these Registry entries, without a full backup of the Registry?


If you notice, the hive you refer to is "HKEY_CURRENT_USER "
The Current User, AKA you.

My Registry does not list those key locations.

If u want the short answer... I have been expierencing some issues in some game clients and game websites and some other websites. For example i cant login Uplay at all, some Riot Games websites dont work, Epic Games Launcher doesnt work, etc.

And one of the tutorials I found showed that I should delete these reg. files.
Ah yes...the ever present tutorial, recommending random Registry edits.

Any 'tutorial' that refers to editing the Registry, and does not start with "Make a backup of your Registry"...should be ignored completely.


Your system is now in a much worse state than when when you started. An unrecoverable state.

I feel really dumb.. it is my first time ever touching the registry files. Is there any FREE program, that u guys might know of, that could help me with this?
No.
There is no "Undelete Registry entries" or "Recover deleted Registry entries" application.

The way to fix mistakes like this are twofold.

  1. Before you start, having a good backup, preferably of the whole system
  2. Knowing what you are doing and why. Rather than blindly following a random 'tutorial'.
