(both the HKCU and HKLM) Can you enumerate the entries available at the Network:

The entries found here are policies used to restrict you from accessing some of Windows Explorer functions.

okay then lets try getting an image of your screen, a screenshot will do.
When everything is ready press the Print Screen Button. Open up Paint, then paste it. Save the file as xxx.jpg then attach it here so I can take a look.
