You can restore very easily using scanreg and it doesn't matter if you have rebooted as Windows stores copies of the registry from your last 5 boots.

To restore the registry:

1) Click Start>shutdown>restart in MS-Dos mode. (If you have to do a hard reboot, hold down F8 and you will get to the boot menu - choose MS Dos)

2) You will end up at the dos prompt and should be at C:\windows. Add: \sysbackup and press enter.

(If you are at the root [C:\] type CD\Windows\sysbackup and press enter.

3) Next type scanreg /restore and press enter (there is a space between scanreg and the forward slash)

4) You will find yourself at a menu of five registry backups named rbxxx.cab.

Choose one with a date prior to your brain-fade and click restore.

That's all there is to it. You will be back in business in no time at all, ready for another adventure.
