Specs: Windows XP
I have a Dell laptop, runnning Vista. One day I had two program files, so I delelted one of them because it was a copy of all my programs. Well now, I don't have any files under all programs on the start menu. I've tried system restore, and nothing happened. How do I fix it? Can i reinstall Vista??

Reinstalling Vista will not get your installed programs back, they will need to be reinstalled.
If they are only ones that came with your Dell then doing a system restore will put it back as it was when you first got it.
If you go this route make sure to BACKUP all your personal files first, Doc's, photos, music etc. to an external drive cd/dvd.
You only loose what you don't backup.
