Access System Restore through Help and Support.
Follow the instructions on your screen.
To access the System Restore Wizard, click Start, and then click Help and Support. Click Performance and Maintenance, click Using System Restore to undo changes, and then click Run the System Restore Wizard.
While the computer is in safe mode, System Restore does not create any restore points. Therefore, you cannot undo a restoration that you performed when the computer was in safe mode.
You can use System Restore to restore your computer to any restore point while in safe mode. If you cannot start the computer in standard mode, you can use System Restore to restore to a time when you could start the computer without errors.
To restore to a time when your computer started without errors, select a restore point as close to the time you remember it last started without errors.
If System Restore is suspended because of insufficient disk space, you cannot enable it by making more disk space available while in safe mode. You must restart the computer in standard mode and make more disk space available.

Try booting to Safe Mode, but at the "Options Screen", choose "Last known good configuration" and see if it will boot to Normal Mode.

set up your own search if this one doen't find what you need. There are some tools out there, some you have to buy, some free. I remember once I changed my user account, and all my outlook express emails disappeared. I was able to find a free utility and/or instructions that enabled me to get them back. I was able to do that by taking the initiative and looking for the answer. No doubt, it happened to you and you can bet it has happened to others. The answer is out there.

One way to find the file is to create a message with a know string in it and then search for it. Once you find it, search for other files with the same or similar names. Then move the existing file and copy (not rename) the other file. The reason you want to copy it is if something happens, you want to still have the original file untouched.
