Non functioning O/S

I am using XP Home on a Sony Laptop
Having enthusiastically employed the "remove unwanted files" from the Feb? edition of PCAdvisor the Run function no longer works.
I can run the MS office Applications and IE6 works fine. No other application starts from enter, double click or the command line run.
I can open the printer folder in Control Panel but System Add/Remove and most others do not respond. System tools does not respond so I cannot Restore. Application CDs do not load.
In the absence of other evidence, I blame myself.

Can anyone help?

Thanks
Bill

OK try this...

Open you Internet Explorer and copy and paste:

C:\WINDOWS\system32\cmd.exe

Into the address bar and press enter.

Now you should see a black windows with some text in it.

Type:

SFC /SCANNOW

Then press enter have your XP CD in the Drive when you do this.
