When I remove the Enum-key under hkey_local_machine then Windows redetects all 
hardware. So a reinstall would not be needed. Wine has a regedit. But I don't 
know how to tell wine that it uses the registry from the installed windows.
Would be a nice "recovery" feature for Linux to be able to edit windows 
registries, because a defective registry is often a problem in windows...
Cheers, Martin
