Shouldn't windows file protection restore it? If not, do this.

TASK MANAGER > File > Run > iexplore > Type in address bar: %WINDIR%system32dllcache > Explorer.exe should be in there

boot into safe mode wit command prompt and copy the explorer.exe in dllcache to your windir.

this *should* work, if the prob lies in just the explorer.exe being deleted.
