You should repair your Win XP.

1. Reboot and press F8 while system's booting (just before boot screen will appear). From Menu that you'll see choose: "Last working configuration".
-> If that won't pass then ->
2. Do it when Your OS is on. Put a nice CD, with logo Microsoft Windows XP Whatever in CD-Rom and choose "Install Windows XP" (or somethin' like that). When You see window with possibility to "full install" or "upgrade". choose the 2nd option. This process is similar to first installation, so blabbing about whole reinstallation is unnecessary.
-> If Yu've done serious damage to Your PC, probably it's angry and fixing it won't be easy...->
3. (almost last) Do it while Your OS is on. Put a nice blah, blah, blah... (see 2nd advice), choose 1st option (remember to remove every non-shortcut from DESKTOP!!!!).
-> IF THAT WON'T PASS, WE ALL KNOW WHAT IT MEANS ->
4a. Use Norton Commander or something similar and delete Windows folder (be cruel - Your PC was). After that reboot using bootable OS CD and install Windows again.
!!!!4b - The last and the least advice... Reboot using old win98 or Me floppy. Do it with tears in your eyes: FORMAT YOUR OS HDD. Install Windows on formatted drive.
Probably adventures like that will set You a little bit anti-OS-customizing, but remember that before you'll do anyting stoopid, You can ask us if that won't damage your system. <- THIS WORDS WERE WRITTEN FOR ALL NEWBIES IN OUR WINDOWS CUSTOMIZERS' WORLD.
The has spoken. (And he's tired now).

has forgotten to tell you about "System Restore"
Hey I think "Last working configuration" and "System restore" are the same things.
