Alrighty, yesterday I couldn't sleep so I was customizing my mac! I found a Leopard theme ported over to SL which I desperately wanted to try. The theme came without an installer so I had to move the files manually. For some reason I couldn't simply move the theme files to the directory, instead I had to copy the original finder files into a back-up folder, delete them from the directory and then move over the themes files. Well something happened and Finder stopped working! I got the error message 'Finder won't open, 10810'. Now to my question, is it possible for me to somehow reset Finder without formatting the drive? I do have the original finder files on the desktop but I'm unable to view my desktop or any thing in Finder at all. Even spotlight doesn't work, so any commands using Terminal can be ruled out!

All help is appreciated!

Edit: I do not have a back-up of my current drive and I'd prefer not to format it, if this is a possible option ofc.

Insert Snow Leopard DVD, boot from it...and repair OS, should do the job.
