System restore WILL NOT remove ANY of you personal files. It WILL repair your registry. It will remove any updates or programs that were installed (easy enough to fix). IF you can access system restore, even a week or a month ago, GO FOR IT!
Also if you can get 'Last Known Good Configuration' as an option, try that as well, it also should fix things.
IF you saved a copy of your registry you could restore it yourself, BUT system restore can do that and is much safer if you can do it. Restoring manually by retyping is risky.
IF you cannot repair, download a Live Linux and burn a bootable CD/DVD and boot to that and save your files and do a repair install of Windows 7. This way you are protected and if needed you can do a reinstall or a factory recovery without loosing anything except the time to reinstall everything.

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.

On my running system those registry keys have the value 3 (manual). Setting them to 4 (disabled) was pretty stupid - why did you do that?

Try 3 (or even 2) and see if it works. If it does, then learn your lesson and in future don't mess with things that you don't understand.
