Don't ask em why I did it--wanted to get rid of that inactive networking icon. Some site said to delete this:HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\CLSID\{7007ACCF-3202-11D1-AAD2-00805FC1270E} --- I did, and not only did the undesirable icon disappear but so did my dial-up icon. Obviously I can get on-line but you can't see the connection active down at the bottom. Had NO business doing this-- since computers and I don't get along that well. I'd really like to put this registry blunder back to square one. XP Media Center computer. Can anyone advise me how to restore this? If so, advise would have to be given like talking to a computer moron--(hey, I DID delete a registry key) And yes, I will resist all urges to monkey with the registry again! Thank you.

It may or may not work to run sfc /scannow.
But it won't hurt.

Click Start/RUN & type in sfc /scannow.
There is a space between the c & the /.
Click OK.
It runs.
It may prompt for the xp cd.
or not.
When it goes away check to see if the problem is fixed.
You may need to reboot.

OK. I ran sfc /scannow--it wants me to install the disk. This HP Pavilion win xp media center didn't come with a disk. It has a D drive that is some kind of recovery partition. When I try to get in the D drive it just gives me a warning. Is there a way to recover the deleted registry key from the recovery partition? How might I get into the D drive?

Do you have a recovery CD?
If so try it at the prompt.

If you don't have a recovery cd,you could try contacting HP support.
What does the warning say?
My Emachine has a recovery partition too.
It never prompts for a CD.
Sorry I can't offer better help.

Have you reinstalled your IP software? I know with a dialup this can be time consuming especially with some of the monster downloads like AOL or Earthlink unless you have a recent Install CD for your IP.

Maybe a way to restore dial-up icon.

Thanks for all the input. So far, no good. Is there a way to put the entry I deleted HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\CLSID\{7007ACCF-3202-11D1-AAD2-00805FC1270E} back into the regestry?
That is the key I deleted. Would putting it back in fix the issue? If so, how do I put it back in and where does it go? I can get to the place in the registry, but I'm not sure where in the 7007A*** strings it might go. I've really done it this time!

Have you tried a System Restore yet? Go to:

Start > All Programs > Accessories > System Tools > System Restore

and restore the computer to a date and time before you deleted the registry key.
