Question about Microsoft Windows XP Professional With Servise Pack 2 (e8503040) for PC
Making registry changes can be a disaster. I use Registry Mechanic by PC Tools but, there are other good ones out there too. I prefer to use a program that is designed to fix registry problems, because when there is an issue, it knows what to look for and where, instead of hoping to find everything that needs to be changed. I haven't had any problems since I started using it 2 years ago. It keeps my system running nicely.

Tips for a great answer:
Turn off the computer, then hit the power button to turn it
back on and immediately start hitting the F8 key repeatedly until you see SAFE
MODE. Take the Safe Mode option and let it boot up. Safe Mode will look
different to you, the screen will be darker and the icons bigger, this is
Run a System Restore. Click Start/Programs/Accessories/System Tools/System Restore. (If you have Windows 7, click Start then in the search box type System Restore and look at the returned results from the search and click System Restore). Once you open System Restore you want to select a Restore Point (date and time) before you started having problems. In your case that would be before you deleted the registry). Don't worry System Restore does not delete any of your data, documents, music, pictures, videos or programs (unless the program was installed after the Restore Point you selected).
System Recovery on the other hand will Delete Everything and set your system back to when you first purchased it.
If the above steps don't work then yes, restore the registry from a command prompt. The Registry is backed up automatically when windows create a restore point using System Restore. From a command line prompt simply type: rstrui.exe
