    You can check the recycle bin, it's possible they are still there. Kinda doubt it though. Also, if you are running ME or XP you can do a system restore to a restore point prior to the deletion.

    True but only if he created a restore point in the first place. If i am not mistaken windows doesnt do auto restore points, you need to manually do them. I usually do one ever two or three months. It has come in handy at least two times.

    Reinstalling IE should fix it. As far as Windows 2000 goes...hopefully you're ok. If you start getting a ton of crazy errors you may need to do a repair install of Windows 2000.
