I downloaded your .reg file to remove libraries from Windows 7 permanently. However, since then I found better ways of working around this. I tried modifying the downloaded file to reverse the procedure but this didn't work. How can I get libraries back after removing them? I don't want to do a full system restore as I would lose other things I would like to keep.

Here is the title of the original solution I tried: How To Disable and Remove Libraries from Windows 7

"Whose" .reg file? – Shinrai Dec 3 '10 at 23:17

Try Restore Default Settings.reg from the archive provided here

Thanks, I downloaded your .zip file and ran the Restore Default Settings.reg file but this only gave me a Libraries (32 Bit) directory that can't be opened in my Desktop folder. When I ran the file it seemed to indicate that everything was being added correctly. I have a 64bit OS. Could that be the hangup?
