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.

Save the file as menubarsenable.reg.

Double-click it and press Yes when prompted.

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

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