You have probably badly corrupted the registry too. I would try and back up
everything you can and do a complete reinstall after formatting the drive.
There are a couple of good second party programs that I always keep around
for these things. PowerQuest has Drive Image and Partition Magic which will
allow you to copy things over to another drive or to an image and to manage
partitions. They both will allow you to do these things outside the
operating system from a floppy which can be quite handy too. These are two
of my "must have" apps and are not very hard to grasp either.
