I found this on Apple's site. Hopefully it's helpful:

Your answer is contained in that link above..Although I find it strange that if you delete one file, assuming you only have one mac, you have to reinstall the OS....

I'm new to the Mac platform, is there something to restore in case you delete something like this?

Btw...klumick...I think it might be a good idea to just backup your library folder...just in case!
