Hi, I've been running windows 8.1 and have recently been having problems connecting to any wifi point. When I connect via ethernet, everything is fine. Yet I cannot access any wifi. Someone suggested that it has to do with registry keys, so I installed "Registry Recycler" found over 200 empty registry keys which I removed. I was able to connect via wifi for a short time. When I could not get in with wifi, I ran the recycler again, removed the empty registry keys and was able to use wifi again. This is becoming redundant as I have never had this problem before. Why is this happening and how can it be fixed?

Registry keys many time will not contain information until they are needed, mucking around the registry can be quite dangerous without proper help.

If you don't stand for the flag then you will fall for anything!
