I was helping a friend with their computer and deleted AOL program from her Documents in her C drive. When I rebooted I went to open up the Control Panel and their were no icons showing. I got the error message: " Internet Explorer Error
Line 107
Char 21
Error Permission denied
Code 0
URL File File://C:\\Windows\Web\contrdp.htt
Do you want to continue running scripts on this page.
I clicked yes and I had no icons appear in the Control Panel and later when I tried to access Internet Explorer I got the same error message.
What can I do to get the Control Panel back?
I'm real worried that in deleting the file AOL Application I messed something up.
Thanks for anyone's ideas on this.

Try System Restore and use a restore point dated before you deleted AOL
http://www.microsoft.com
If that doesn't work and you have a XP disk, you can run System File Checker

Can I restore to a day and time.
Yesterday I spent a lot of time deleting unwanted programs to increase the start up speed.
I'd like to restore to 12/2/07 @2:00 PM, otherwise I'll lose a lot of work.
How can I restore to a day and time?
Hope it's possible.
Thanks so much.

You only have a choice of a date, not the specific time.

Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life.  You never know when one will leave you.

You might lose a lot of work, but at least the computer will function properly. Then you can properly clean up old programs using the Add/Remove programs feature. If you intend to stop unwanted services at statup do not use MSCONFIG. Instead try a program such as Autoruns.

Thanks everyone. I forgot to tell you the laptop is running Millenium. I tried to use system restore to undo what happened on 12/2 but I had to go into a safe boot to get to system restore and it would not allow me to restore anything before 12/5. All other dates were greyed out and it would not take me to a prior month. Only two dates were available 12/5 and 12/8. You cannot get into explorer or see the icons in the control panel. I'm at a loss at what I can do....thinking of reformatting the hard disk and reloading the operating system???
Any magical help out there!!
