Registry Edit Fix

A while ago, I was following some instructions on a forum, involving MouseKeys, that had me edit the registry to make the computer think I was pressing the Numpad 5 key when I pressed Num 7, changed Num 8 to Num 2, and Num 9 to Num 5. Unfortunately, I stupidally didn't make a ackup of the original file, and the forum post I was following is gone now, so I have no idea what I did. All I remember is that it involved overwriting one registry file with a file full of numbers, but I forget the name of the file that was changed. I know I should have made backups and paid more attention, but it is too late for that now. Is there, by some miracle, anyone who knows how I can fix this?

gaga654, Do you have a System Restore Point just prior to when you edited the registry? Start>Programs>Accessories>System Tools>System Restore.

Unfortunately, I think I changed it before the earliest restore point listed, which is from a couple of months ago (June 1st). I don't use the Numpad much, and didn't notice that the numbers were switched until recently.
