Well, this was a stupid move by me, but I was trying to get a game to work, misread some instructions, and wound up deleting the LSPs that I was supposed to keep. After I did this, I couldn't access the internet, so I restarted the computer. When it started, a login screen appeared (which it never did), and when I press ctrl+alt+del, a rectangle with 6 buttons appear.

The internet still doesn't work, and I can't fix it for the life of me. I figure if I get back the 3 LSP, it will work, but I need to know where to put them so that they will work, and if there is anyway to retrieve them offline.

EDIT: I forgot to mention, the 3 LSPs are:mswsock.dll, winrnr.dll, rsvpsp.dll

This may be what you need LSP-Fix.

I can't access the internet on the computer, and that's actually the program I used to delete the LSPs.

Have you tried a Restore Point to the day before the damage??

Dang, that would've been perfect, but for some reason it was turned off.

There are a number of ways to rebuild your winsock. Read through these sites to get a feel for it. If you need to download a program, do it on another computer and put it on removeable media and move it to the computer that's damaged.

You can run into problems if you have third-party software installed, such as that from a DSL provider.

I get the feeling that LSP Fix didn't delete those files. All LSP Fix does is re-order existing Layered Service Providers, by removing blank spaces. You can accidentally remove providers you shouldn't, but not the files you mentioned.

Thats what I mean, I deleted them through LSPfix. I was trying to get a game to work and there was a sticky on the tech board. It said don't remove those 3 LSPs, I thought it said TO remove those LSPs. It also said to check I know what I'm doing to delete any LSPs other than those 3, so I checked that I knew what I was doing, deleted the wrong things, and now I'm here. Anyways, thanks a lot Herk and Acklan.
