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-
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


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

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