So I think I made a mistake. I was in the registry and accidently deleted the wrong key and now I can't remember which one it was. Because after I did that I restarted my computer and now my taskbar is gone, I cannot copy or and my internet isn't working? I was hoping someone might be able to help me out. I was thinking of taking the xp pro cd and running a repair however I don't have the exact copy that came with my computer. I do have copy of xp pro but like I said its not the same one that came with my computer, does that matter? I would really appreciate the help thanks in advance.

I don't think it matters that you don't have the exact same disc that came with your machine, just as long as it's the same version of Windows. You should be able to reinstall it over the top.

Do the System Restore on the date before u deleted the registry. That's all.
