Hack:   Don't Fear the Registry

Response to: easier solution

I stumbled on this thread as I was struggling with an xp issue.
For some reason one day XP stopped seeing my cd and
dvd drives. I read about a reg hack where you delete
two keys called "UpperFillers" and "LowerFillers". I
went in and deleted these but I think I deleted the
wrong ones. I zapped the ones for the keyboard and the
mouse.
When I boot I can't use my keyboard or mouse so I
can't log in, can I?
I made a backup to the registry before starting and I
have older xp restore points as well. But how can I
even get in to use these.
Please, any help you can provide me would be greatly,
greatly appreciated.

    my advice would be to slave the drive to another working os, and manuly go in and reinstall the reg files. That is the best way i know of.

    Hope this helps.
