Accidentally deleted HKEY_Current_User\Software. How to fix?

I've recently did a full scan with my anti virus (smadav) and it found 2 'virus' called HKEY_Current_User\Software\CurrentVersion\Policies\Explorer
and
HKEY_Current_User\Software\CurrentVersion\Policies\System

I've deleted it and upon further research I found out that it's supposed to be kept!

Are there any possible way to restore it? (have not backed up the computer yet)

Perform a system restore to a restore point before you deleted the key.

The registry isn't listed as a program/driver that will be restored. Is that normal?
