To do a system restore without having system restore. This is advanced system recovery and there are no click by click instructions because your system is different from everyone else's. Sorry but that's why we have to learn where the backup copies of the files in question are, backup what we are about to replace and then test the result.

Sometimes you have to cave and reinstall this OS.
