renamed csginal.dll and windows not booting up

Archived from groups: microsoft.public.windowsxp.newusers (More info?)

I renamed the csgina.dll to enable the fast switching in an absent-minded
state (I wanted to actually rename the registry entries. I restarted the m/c
again in this same absent-minded state. The machine wont boot up now. It
gives some sort of User interface error and points to the csgina.dll
ANy help in restoring the system would be appreciated.
Thanks

    SCANNOW

    If you have an XP disk you can do a scan for missing
    files. Put the disk in your driver and wait for the
    autoplay to do it's thing. Now click exit on the
    selections screen and leave the disk in.
    click>start\run\and type in cmd and hit enter or click ok.
    Now the command screen comes up and you type in
    SFC /scannow and hit enter. This should scan for any
    missing files or dll's that windows XP needs and put them
    back in their Microsoft specs.
