At the cmd prompt, you can try to copy the shell32.dll file from the installation disc to your hard drive installation.

(Replace X with your actual drive letters)

X:\

xcopy X:\windows\system32\shell32.dll C:\windows\system32

There's a clear tutorial given in the second post, please follow it. With Command Prompt from the Windows installation DVD, just enter the command given in the third post.

Be careful reading things on the Internet, only follow instructions from reputable forums and blogs like this one. The person clearly didn't know what they were doing, if they thought it was okay to remove system files.
