Computer not showing login screen

Specs: Windows XP SP2
Few days ago, I pasted a new file called ""uxtheme.dll" downloaded from net in C:\WINDOWS\system32.There was already a file by that name so i renamed the old file as "uxtheme.dll.old" and pasted the new file.Few days after that i installed Style XP Software(a software to customize desktop, screensaver, themes, logon screens, bootscreens). I changed the logon screen from its default. I restarted the system. Now i cud not see the login screen and i am unable to open the computer.

So, using the recovery console (XP SP2 CD), I tried to repair the Windows. In the process, I thought i should delete the login screen and deleted it using some commands(DOS Commands).I also deleted the whole "Resources" file (C:\Windows\Resources) using some dos commands.

Still my computer was not loging in.

So, I referred to an article from Microsoft( which
I was confused. So i saw an article in Microsoft ( The problem in that article was similar to mine and i followed the instructions given there.

Still am not able to open .

I have huge data (Crucial-- its not just games /songs) in C: drive. I thought i shud not loose the whole data. So, I did not reinstall XP SP2.

If U can pl help me, i shall be very grateful to U.

Run a Windows Repair (NOT Recovery Console) and don't delete anything.
