a colleague have accidentally deleted a entire computer group including all my company's computer accounts from our WSUS server. I sthere anyway in which I can get the group back, and if not how can I add all the computer accounts again?

Thanks,
Ronnie

Unfortunately, there is no option to restore deleted group in WSUS console. You need to recreate it manually and then put clients to it. When group is deleted then all computers go to "Unassigned" group.
The last thing, you need to accept updates for newly created group, again

Ok. What if I name the new group the same as the old deleted one? Will I then have to approve the updates again?

Nope, when you deleted it, it was also removed from WSUS database (SQL) and when you recreate it, no linked updates are there :/

Just incase you don't know;

There is a way to automatticaly approve all updates for a group. so all you have to do is set that in motion once you've created the group again. No more problems from then on. :)
