I did something stupid and accidentally deleted a bunch of files. I used file recovery software to get everything back, but now I can't open anything. I'm assuming this is because the software re-organized everything by partition, and now those partition files are just sitting on my desktop. How can I make my files usable again?

I am unsure if you are referring to the files you deleted - when you say
but now I can't open anything.
or to general aspects of the system

The first issue you need to address is
Hard Drives: C: 103 GB (2 GB Free);
you cannot run a drive with such a very small amount of free space
it just will not work.
you need an absolute minimum of 10%

I am referring to the files I deleted, and yes I know I posted here just before I transferred some things to a USB drive!

What type of files were they and which recovery softwaer did you use please, some recovery software, that is free shows you the files recovered, but to open them requires the purchase of the program -
