Windows 7: Registry Corupted - please help!

Registry Corupted - please help!

Dear users of this forum.

my story is silly... I knew I should have not erased a registry key... let's starts first things first:
I have a brand new win7-64bit system, and I experienced many problems with my USB-MIDI devices that required me to reinstall several times this driver. However, due to some strange problems, win7 can't find the driver it installed previously and needed that I cleaned the registry before to re-plug my device... but this time, I went too fast and wrongly erased the folowing registry key:

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Class\{4D36E96C-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318}]

I found no way to fix this key, and can only find a vista or xp registry key like this (but is not apparently fully valid for win7):

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Class\{4D36E96C-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318}]
"Class"="MEDIA"
@="Contrôleurs audio, vidéo et jeu"
"Installer32"="MmSys.Cpl,MediaClassInstaller"
"EnumPropPages32"="MmSys.Cpl,MediaPropPageProvider"
"TroubleShooter-0"="hcp://help/tshoot/tssound.htm"
"Icon"="3004"


Please is someone can export this key and copy it to me in a reply?

Thank you very much in advance... I am stucked in this dead end....

I do not have a key to send, but if no one else comes along that can help you try system restore to make things good again.

yes, but when I tried to restore it, i receive also the same VSS service issue (0x80042302).

I know this is bad sign, but my priory goal now is to fix this registry key...

I have the key, but it is too large to upload to this site (about 34kb; the limit is about 10kb)
