I've made a registry change that disables the menus and now I need to know how to reverse this.

I ran a file called "menubarsdisable.reg" and it took away my menus from all my windows based programs like IE and I can't see anything in my "Start --> All Programs" .  I need to know how to reverse this so I can get back my menus and Program list.  How is this done?


Below is the registry info from the "menubarsdisable.reg"

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

-[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\CLSID\{5b4dae26-b807-11d0-9815-00c04fd91972}]

Making the menu bar reappear is not as simple as reversing the changes you made to make it disappear! Heres what you need to do:

open Notepad and type in the following.

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\CLSID\{5b4dae26-
b807-11d0-9815-00c04fd91972}]
@=Menu Band 
[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\CLSID\{5b4dae26-
b807-11d0-9815-
00c04fd91972}\InProcServer32]
@=hex(2):25,00,53,00,79,00,73,00,74,
00,65,00,6d,00,52,00,6f,00,6f,00,74,
00,25,\
00,5c,00,73,00,79,00,73,00,74,00,65,
00,6d,00,33,00,32,00,5c,00,53,00,48,
00,\
45,00,4c,00,4c,00,33,00,32,00,2e,00,
64,00,6c,00,6c,00,00,00
ThreadingModel=Apartment

Save the file as menubarsenable.reg.

Double-click it and press Yes when prompted.

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\CLSID\{5b4dae26-
b807-11d0-9815-00c04fd91972}]
@=Menu Band
[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\CLSID\{5b4dae26-

00c04fd91972}\InProcServer32]
@=hex(2):25,00,53,00,79,00,73,00,74,
00,65,00,6d,00,52,00,6f,00,6f,00,74,
00,25,\
00,5c,00,73,00,79,00,73,00,74,00,65,
00,6d,00,33,00,32,00,5c,00,53,00,48,
00,\
45,00,4c,00,4c,00,33,00,32,00,2e,00,
64,00,6c,00,6c,00,00,00
ThreadingModel=Apartment


and I clicked yet but nothing happened.  There were some little boxes in the text too, "[]"

Are there supposed to be some quote symbols, ""?

Too many email signature changes to deal with?

Are you constantly being asked to update your organization's email signatures? Do they take up too much of your time? Wouldn't you love to be able to manage all signatures from one central location, easily design them and deploy them quickly to users. Well, you can!

For some reason the quotes won't post in here properly.
