I was installing Google Chrome on my elementary OS from installer and due to unmet dependencies i run

sudo apt-get install -f

Don't know what happened i just it was saying

removing Pantheon-files

and as a result now i am not able to use elementary OS. As every time i start elementary OSit shows login screen but after logged in it just hanged nothing showing only wallpaper of login screen!!

No i am totally stuck i read somewhere that i should create a live CD on USB then bootup with USB and try to install it again then installer will show repair option! i tried it but repair option is not showing!

now i am very dishearted dont know how to get back my elementary OS or i will have to remove it and then reinstall it?? kindly if its possible to repair elementary OS. Thanks a lot!

I have installed elementary OS with Windows 7 dual boot!

It seems like you unistalled parts of your desktop.

sudo apt-get install --reinstall elementary-desktop should do the trick.

BTW you can install chromium from the official repositories.
