    Since this was done, you are now probably signing in with a temp profile. You can try right clicking the users folder and choose restore previous versions. Then choose a day before he did this and click restore.

    Restart and the issue should be resolved.

    Now give your son a limited user account so he cannot screw stuff up next time.
