How did you backup your registry?
If it was with a System Restore point, then that's the best and easiest way to restore it. Just run System Restore and go back to that point. At work I routinely delete registry entries and often delete things that I shouldn't (in search of a fix) - but System Restore (in Windows 7) has saved my bacon on several occasions.
Yes, the only problem at the time was Windows not recognizing the CD-rom drive.
I exported the data using regedit.exe and set the export range to 'all'.
I don't have a restore point made prior to the deletion.
Would there be any risk in importing the .reg backup file?
