Hello Dexter, and welcome to Seven Forums.

You can do a System Restore using a restore point dated before you deleted them to restore them.

Hope this helps,
Shawn

Here's the default registry entries for Run in the reg download below. However, you will need to take ownership (step 3 in OPTION TWO) and grant your account full permission of every registry key (left pane) at HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\CLSID\{2559a1f3-21d7-11d4-bdaf-00c04f60b9f0 since the owner of these keys is TrustedInstaller in Windows 7. After running the reg file below, you would then have to restore TrustedInstaller as the owner for all of the registry key above again.

It would be much easier with a System Restore if it did not undo to many other items you have changed though.

It may be worth a try, but since it is a deleted registry entry instead of a system file, I do not think it would help.

Dexter,

Without knowing for sure what you have deleted, it would be pure guess work on what to try and restore. It may be best to bite the bullet and do a System Restore using a restore point dated before this problem.
