So the other day I was deleting files very recklessly to free Disk Space. Seems like I deleted some important stuff.

deleted EXPLORER.EXE~ so my Task bar is screwed

Also Certain Programs wont run; IZARC, VEOH WEBPLAYER, QUICKCAM

When i try to run IZARC.... this pops up: C:\Program Files\izarc\izarc.exe This appliction has failed to start because the application configuration is in correct.

To top it all off I cant download ANYTHING to fix it. The download pops up for half a second then dissappears.

So am i completely screwed or what?

Thanks, Louise
PS: System Restore doesnt work either.

If you have the Windows XP install CD then you can do a "repair/install" that will repair Windows and leave your installed programs and files intact. The downside is you will need to re-install ALL the Windows updates.

See this site for more info:

hopefully a system restore might fix it, unless you had turned it off.
