Missing File: System32/drivers/nvgts.sys - Windows XP

  1. I earlier on used WinUtilities to delete duplicate files on my computer to free up space, and it deleted nvgts.sys from system32 >.< I turned my computer off, then a couple of hours later wanted to go back on it and got the following error in BIOS:
    Windows could not start because the following file is missing or corrupt: system32/DRIVERS/nvgts.sys
    I later learned that this was a Graphics Driver from nVidia, and that it was needed to run the computer.
    I have been searching for hours now, unable to get access to a recovery/reinstallation disk or make one of my own.
    I set a recovery point before this happened but don't think I can access this in BIOS.
    What else can I do now?!
    Thanks for any help, much appreciated.
    I am on Windows XP by the way
