Help please

i tryed to install a theme onto my laptop. in the readme it told me to replace explorer.exe with another one to complete this theme. i now cant load windows due to an error just after i enter my login password that says
"explorer.exe -aplication error the aplication was unable to lstart correctly (0xc0000142). click OK to close the aplication"
can anyone help me out here? i realise it was a dumbass idea to mess arround with explrer.exe but the windows7 theme came from deviantart (its called DarkSoft), so i figured it was tried and tested and what it told me to do i could do with no harm to my computer.
what can i do??

Can you get in with safe mode and then do a system restore?
