So.....I accidently deleted a system file from my laptop.....is there anything I can do to fix it without restoring my entire computer. This happened so randomly, that I don't have any files backed up and don't want to lose anything. I feel like such an idiot to have done this....but I guess it's not the worst that could have happened...or is it?? HELP!! I need to use my laptop and soon!

:/ Jenn

If you have a 'proper' xp install cd (not a recovery cd) you could boot from it into the 'repair console' by pressing 'R' when prompted.

What is your operating system? You can extract a file from your OS CD and replace it. What file did you delete and did you look in the recycle bin to see if it is still there?
