    Gah! Plymouth
    turn off the computer in question instantly, then on another computer download a recovery software program for OS X and then turn back on the computer in question install it and run it

    You mean you deleted the folder ~/Desktop (i.e. Desktop from your home folder)? If so you could try creating a folder called Desktop in your home folder.
