Windows 7: Deleted Some files. System won't standby or shutdown.

Deleted Some files. System won't standby or shutdown.

Hey guys. Long story, I accidently managed to delete all files in my c:/users directory and now my system won't go into standby or hibernate mode. It just shows a blank screen when I choose either or these but the PC never hibernates or sleeps and the only way to get it out of this state is a hard shutdown. I deleted all Files/Folders except my own user folder.

What are my options?

Maybe a restore point?

Restore point was my first option but too bad I don't have any.

I ran sfc /scannow. It found corrupt files and fixed them. Now the system standbys just fine but hibernation still hasn't been fixed.

What should I try next now?

Run the System File Checker a few more times, sometimes it takes a few attempts to fix everything that it is able to fix, if the problem still persists then we will we suggest the next step.

Follow some of the suggestions in the above link, if the System File Checker doesn't resolve anything further after a few attempts.

If you deleted all files including hidden in Users directory then I'd seriously consider a Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7 and then stick with the tools and methods given to get and maintain a perfect install.
