If Windows will not boot, the easiest way to recover the missing files would be to boot from the startup disk, and just re-install Windows.

As long as you do not leave off any optional components, re-installing windows will not disrupt your installed programs or settings.

You may need to re-install some windows updates though.

Now, you need to determine why you lost the files.

Is your hard drive starting to fail?
Do you have a virus?
Did someone accidentily delete a few files?

To check your hard drive, run scandisk a few times, and see what if any errors show up.

Scan all drives, folders, and files with the latest virus definitions for your virus scanner.

Is the Configuration Manager the only Program that wont open or is there more.Do you have up to date anti virus software? The W32YaHa.F@mm can cause this problem as it disables exe files. If you suspect this go to Symantecs web site and print out the instructions for removal before you do anything else. If you have Anti Virus software and it is not running in the background as it should be you will know you have a problem.
