You can check the recycle bin, it's possible they are still there. Kinda doubt it though. Also, if you are running ME or XP you can do a system restore to a restore point prior to the deletion.

True but only if he created a restore point in the first place. If i am not mistaken windows doesnt do auto restore points, you need to manually do them. I usually do one ever two or three months. It has come in handy at least two times.
Internet Explorer 6 for Windows 2000
Reinstalling IE should fix it. As far as Windows 2000 goes...hopefully you're ok. If you start getting a ton of crazy errors you may need to do a repair install of Windows 2000.
