Interestingly, I ran the same command on my Win7 "Home Premium" Laptop and got 'more results', I'm guessing some registry keys are missing?:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\WINEVT\Publishers\{
17f14a23-551d-40cc-a086-e4194d64ed4c}
(Default) REG_SZ Microsoft-Windows-WABSyncProvider
ResourceFileName REG_EXPAND_SZ %SystemRoot%\system32\WABSyncProvider.d
ll
MessageFileName REG_EXPAND_SZ %SystemRoot%\system32\PortableDeviceSync
Provider.dll
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\WINEVT\Publishers\{
17f14a23-551d-40cc-a086-e4194d64ed4c}\ChannelReferences


Incidentally, I'm a developer for a Microsoft stack product, so don't worry about simplifying your answers too much....

Thanks in advance.

There does appear to be data missing there...

Here's my output from the same commands...
Code:

I have to admit that this is an area I've not delved into before - so all bets are off

Perhaps copying the relevant data from the 'good' machine will work - but I can't be sure without extensive testing (and I don't have the proper baseline to work from )

I started with grafting them over from the good machine, but Googling {17f14a23-551d-40cc-a086-e4194d64ed4c} brought up a TechNet article, that suggested deleting all of the sub-entries in WINEVT (risky I know), but this did the trick. All up and running again, thanks!

Incidentally, what sort of events in the CBS Log should I be looking for in case that this happens again (thanks for any tips)?
