Can you check the following registry key?:




At that registry key, in the right window, is there, under "Name", either an UpperFilters or LowerFilters value?


If so, for each of the UpperFilters and/or LowerFilters value, what is listed under "Data"?

Did this solve your problem?

Sorry this didn't help.

Great! Thanks for marking this as the answer.
