Made a Huge mistake - Please help!

I made a huge mistake and don't know how to recover. I did two things. I made registry changes without a backup and I tried to delete a connection in RAS. When I did an ipconfig I was seeing a ppp adapter with another IP. I was trying to figure out what it was. Anyway I have made these huge mistakes and now my CSAcs services won't start. Specifically CSAdmin, CSAuth, CSLog, CSRadius and CSTacacs. CSMon and CSDbsynch still start. Can someone help me! I am a desperate woman. I know I screwed up. How do I configure RAS so that these services will start again.

Any help at all will be greatly appreciated.
