I deleted some files that control the GUI interface for my W2003 server.  If I click on Administrative Tools>DHCP, I get a "Problem with Shortcut" error that says "This action is only valid for products that are currently installed."  I get the same error for DNS, and Active Directory components.  The underlying services are working so I've deleted some file.  May I have your suggestions please on how to recover?

Boot up from the installation media and choose to do a repair.  Or now is a good time to test your backup restore procedures.
