I was monkeying with my computer, deleting a few things that were
taking extra space, old programs and such, and a few minutes later, I
tried to download ICQ, after (accidentally) GO FIGURE!, deleting the
entire program, when I was merely trying to delete the old outdated
version in my files... upon trying to re-d/l icq, instead of dl'ing ,
it went to a blank error page, with a tiny little diamond shaped icon
top left corner, i right click to see what it says, and it says,
something like missing active x or something like that, and it says
would you like to go to microsoft to download the correct component,
(which i must have had before i went on a delete spree) UGH....... and
so i go to this page, and well, its quite a confusing page, it has all
the 'behaviors'? listed, i try to dl the thing I need on that page,
and it gives me the same silly error page, and I REALLY REALLY need to
dl two very important things!!! One being restoring my icq! HELP!!!
PLEASE!!

look in your recycle bin & see if you still have all the items & if you do restore them

A good rule to follow is to NEVER delete any files you didn't specifically put on your computer. Only delete things through Add/Remove programs, and only delete data (documents, files, spreadsheets, etc.) that you specifically saved to your hard drive.

Never delete program files or folders. Never delete files you can't identify or files that you don't know the function or purpose of.

Instead of attempting to delete files/folders/items that are eating up your drive space, either purchase a new, larger hard drive or format your computer and reinstall everything.
