Unhappy stuck with nautilus

this is a chinese guy,I'm sorry for my poor english.
when I was enjoying music with rethymbox,I deleted its shortcut on Desktop.
then I decided to empty the rubbish box.but a dialogue came out:
Error while spawning Nautulus:Failed to execute child process "nautilus"
(no such file or directory)
I can't open my home directory then.
when I restarted and logged in as before,it seems I have to do all with terminal.what I know nautilus is only it's the linux "explore.exe"
please help me.

actually nautilus in not the only GUI file manager. for instance there's xfce's Thunar: quite good.
what I'm wondering is how did you managed to remove nautilus itself. were you running under root and removed it from /usr/bin?
