Windows 7 - Display and Newtwork Discovery Issues RRS feed

  • Question

  • I am running Windows 7  - native installation Win 7 Home upgraded by me to Windows 7 Professional SP1.   I am running IE 11.  My old issue is that I cannot turn on network discovery.  I have spent well over 100 hours on this issue and have done all of the google and windows searchable help fixes.  None of them work.  I am down to where I now need to fix my system registry but cannot find clear instructions for this.    Now I have a second issue.  Last week I started up in safe mode to test out whether this was truly a registry issue or something else.   upon restarting NOT in safe mode, my screen display looks like a hybrid between safe and regular mode.  Many drop downs do not appear - Boxes that need to be filled in for searches or filling out forms are not on the screen.  I have double checked my  tools, options, advanced settings with those on my other  machine also running win7 and not having a problem.  the advanced settings are identical.   I spent quite a bit of time on chat with a help person but it came down to paying $95 which I think I exorbitant.   I simply need instructions on what areas of the registry need repaired as well as how to trouble shoot this display issue.
