For some reason when using disk clean up, it decided to remove more files than I wanted to.(never had a problem before) Most of my programs are now gone. I can still reboot to the desktop, but the only icon I get is recycle bin. I also lost the start button on the taskbar!
I put the XP pro disk in and hit R for repair. My question is when it asks what
I want to repair. Im not sure what to put in here so I tried putting in the number one. It then asks for my administrative password which I put in, but it says not a valid password. Also I tried looking for system restore on the hard drive, but it seems to be gone. Any help with this problem would be greatly appreciated! Thanks!

Try safe mode or Last known good configuration at boot..

Care to explain this <t decided to remove more files than I wanted to>

I wish I could. After it examined the disk, I got the window that told me how much space it would free up. I looked at the boxes and checked the ones I wanted to remove. Ive done this many times before with no problem. I also have tried safe mode and still have the same problem. Thanks
