Need help!!! restore deleted registry keys

I deleted the two registry keys below, hoping it would clean up the "Burn" menu option at the top of Windows Explorer, but it did nothing. Now, I'm unable to restore those two keys back into the registry! Can anyone help me get these back in? Thank you so much for your time!!!

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\CommandStore\shell\Windows.bur n

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\explorer\CommandStore\shell \Windows.burn

I forgot to mention that I deleted the entire windows.burn folder and it's subkeys. Any help is greatly appreciated!!!

Is there any chance you could paste the entries in here for me to paste back in? I created a backup, before I changed anything, and I must have screwed that up because the backup is only partial (???).

Thanks again!!!

Ya right, where did you get that idea from ? How did you know I was reading this thread, amazing. ( just kidding , I know how )

But I am curious, could you post a pic of your windows explorer.

I was going to ask, WHY did you do it in the 1st place ? Other then your reason, did it bother you that much.

I don`t mess with the registry, not since XP. I let CCleaner take care of that.

Maybe run sfc /scannow

Thanks for the replies everybody!! Basically, I was trying to cleanup the look at the top. Lame, I know. Especially when I didn't even properly back it up! I appreciate all of your help...

Oh! I will try the scan step you listed, and also thanks for the instructions on posting a screen.

No problem.

Don`t know why you want to remove it, as it`s supposed to be there.
Open an EMPTY folder or partition and you`ll see it`s not there.

Here`s what they look like on my machine, if it helps. I guess you would add the key back if it`s not there, but let someone who knows for sure come along and help you. Chances are your burn option may no longer work in windows explorer, who knows ?
