the basic process is similar to reinstalling xp over itself.

With the windows xp cd in the computer, reboot and follow the prompts for a repair---NOTE: this is not a repair using recovery console

the guy you know should not have done that---there is no value to professional to a user such as yourself and if you do not own a professional license you are guilty of software pirating.

It should not do anything to the files...what it will do is restore your system files and settings, but leave data alone provided you do it right

You will need to reinstall service packs, though.

I do not think there is anything wrong with your idea of copying the folder from elsewhere (needs to be done in safe mode)....heck, it's worth a shot...

safe mode loads windows with a minimal number of drivers and start up applications--since wmp is essentially a system application, you are better off loading it in safe mode,
