Lost games and calculator and IE Explorer icon

I accidently went to cleanup the disk and ended up deleting I think something like Microsoft Multimedia services. As a result, I've lost the calculator, the IE blue incon (replaced by freeserve) and the games like hearts etc. that I had on the computer previously. Is there anywhere I can get them back?

Prehaps

START > SETTINGS > CONTROL PANNEL

ADD/REMOVE PROG. > ADD/REMOVE COMPONENTS

I can add them from add/remove programmes but its not working. Can I get them from the internet anywhere?

Boot from the Windows XP CD.

Let the Setup go through the first part of the Installation procedure.

When you come to the screen in which it says "Welcome to Setup." press Enter to Setup Windows XP.

Press F8 to agree to the End User License.

Let the Setup search your system for previous versions of Windows.

When the Setup is finished searching your system, select your Windows XP Installation and press the R key on your keyboard to start the Repair Procedure.

Setup will delete all major system files and then replace them with new copies.

You will have to download all of the updates from Microsoft Windows Update again because it replaces the files.
