    If you don't have a Vista install availabe to copy the necessary files from, MyDigitalLife have made them available for download, as mentioned in this alternative guide:

    Those procedures have been mentioned in other threads here asking the same question.  There is no need to be fearful of performing the described procedures, as it is only an exercise in restoring functionality whcih has been omitted.
