I have been having some issues since I cleaned my XP Home registry with RegSeeker. One issue is that my CDRW and DVD-ROM have disappeared from the Control Panel.

I would like to restore the backup that is included with RegSeeker, but I don't see how.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Try using System Restore to return your PC to an earlier date before the problem arose.
Start->All Programs->Accessories->System Tools->System Restore

If that's successful, get rid of Regseeker (get rid of it anyway. Registry cleaning utilities can often do more harm than good, esp. the freeware ones.
If you want recommendations for one you can trust, I have no hesitation in recommending "RegSupreme", "RegSupreme Pro" or "jv16 Powertools" from here:

But really your PC will give you fewer problems if you leave the Registry alone or at least don't use a registry cleaner which does everything automatically without giving you the chance to review the errors it's found one by one before allowing that entry to be changed. jv16 Power Tools lets you see each registry error individually (with a full explanation) so you can spot any mis-identified errors and exclude them from being altered. But having said that, it's never given me any mis-identified errors in the 6 months I've been using it.

mpacey, hi.
In regseeker, click on "backups" in the left hand column, a new page will open listing all the backups you have made.
Navigate to the appropriate one, right click on it and in the dialogue that opens, click on "open in regedit". Confirm yes in the new dialogue that will have opened and bingo, all deleted registry entries in that backup will be restored.
