you need to do an authoritative restore from a previous backup that includes system state.
you use NTDSUtil and the "restore subtree" option.

This is for windows 2000 Server and Advanced Server: http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;en-us;241594

This is for windows 2003 Server: http://www.microsoft.com/technet/prodtechnol/windowsserver2003/library/Operations/690730c7-83ce-4475-b9b4-46f76c9c7c90.mspx  you will also notice on this page there are slightly different instructions depending on whether you have run windows 2003 service pack 1.

hope this helps you out,
AJ.

Just in case you don't have a valid backup, you'll find a description on how to restore the objects manually:

Hi ALNMOO,
Could you please explain the B grade and what I could have done better to receive an A grade?

I'm not sure if you're aware but while you still pay the same amount (your 500 points) for the question no matter what the grade, the difference between an A and a B for the Expert is 500 points (it drops from 2000 to 1500) as the Expert receives points based on the grade.  
See: http://www.experts-exchange.com/help.jsp#hi20 and http://www.experts-exchange.com/help.jsp#hi73 for further information.

thanks,
AJ.
