Have you got a restore point just prior to when you think you deleted something in error?If so, try a system restore.

As you say your a "novice" Click on START > All PROGAMS > Accesories > SYSTEM TOOLS and you will find SYSTEM RESTORE.Alternatively click on START and then HELP and SUPPORT and click on " Undo changes to Windows with SYSTEM RESTORE"

You will not lose any documents or e-mails

If this doesn't work

Sorry heavy fingered again!

You will not lose documents or e-mail restoring to an earlier time but any programmes you installed after the restore date will disappear and you will need to reinstall those.

Try that first as it will be simplest way.If no joy let us know and we can guide through reinstalling driver via Device Manager.
