Hi,
What folders were you deleting? Do you have any of the installation discs?

1. From the Windows Start menu, go to Turn off computer and click Restart.
2. As the computer restarts, watch for a progress bar at the bottom of the screen. press F8 about once every second.
3. Immediately press F8 before the progress bar reaches the right side of the screen.
4. From the Windows Start-up menu, highlight Safe Mode and press Enter.
5. Wait for your desktop to appear, and then make the necessary repairs (for example, install programs or devices).
6. When the repairs are done, restart the computer, and allow it to boot normally.
Do a system restore

If unable to get into safemode
Instead of selecting safe mode after pressing F8, select "Last known working condition"


If that does not work and you have an XP cd pls refer to this link
