Okay here's what happened. This morning I decided to clean up my system. I deleted a few things in the WINDOWS folder accidently, and then also deleted them from the re-cycle bin. Now I have found out that my windows XP, looks shabby, and when I right click on the desktop and click properties I cant edit my desktop pic and etc. Also I have lost other faetures like being able to access some files. And I constantly get a DOS popup thing saying Illegal operation perfomed, click conintue or ignore. Anyone know how to fix my problem? I have tried system restore but that didn't help .
