    Tried to delete USB registry key, how to back it up?


    So, I bought a new watercooler a corsair h100i (yay), before that I had a faulty h80i and replaced it. To make the system recognize the hardware I had to change some registries under HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Enum\USB\VID_1B1C&PID_0C04 there were two folders (which i believe were one for each USB entry in my mobo hence I connected the watercooler to both of them when testing, But after I installed the h100i which uses the same software it didn't work, so I tried to delete older USB entries so maybe windows would detect the watercooler as new again, but it dind't work, so I used USBoblivion and nothing happened, so I decied to delete those folders, well I couldn't delete them but the folders are gone, so I can't edit that. Is there A way for me to back that up?

    Oh i did it! So, the question is now, how can I "delete" registry entries under VID_1B1C&PID_0C04? Eeverytime I connected it using a normal USB a to mini B cable it created another folder under VID_1B1C&PID_0C04. How can I delete that or restore so there are no entries under it?

    I'm not sure what you mean about setting USB to default??? But as to your other questions.... try using USBDeview (there's all kinds of potential issues trying to delete from the registry directly)

    You'll see all the USB devices you're seeing in the registry (in a much more cohesive view). Also notice the Connected column. It'll show you if the USB device is currently connected or not. Right click a device->uninstall to remove a device (and uninstall its associated driver, if any)
