Remote Registry missing in Vista


After installing/uninstalling software in Windows Vista Business machine "Remote Registry" got missing in the services list. Poking around the registry, noticed that under "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\RemoteRegistry", Start key was gone.

See picture below for the location:


Creating the "Start" key of type REG_DWORD and value 3 (Manual) or 2 (Automatic), then a rebooted fixed the problem.
