JrzyCrim's instructions here may help you restore the file itself:

As far as the registry, one can only hope that you mad a backup of it before you deleted the keys. If you did you could try to get to safe mode and import that back into the registry.

You could also try restoring to last known good configuration (or a previous restore point that should contain the original registry entries (you will still need to recover the deleted file though).

I would copy everything that you wanted to save first, before trying anything.
