    I don't quite understand, as you're leaving out a lot of detail.

    Your applications are gone? Try reinstalling them.

Im new to this and not really sure what i would need to do to restore the device with all the applications.

    Go under settings, than privacy, and finally select "Factory Data Reset".

    You can also do this:

    1. Power down your device.
    2. Hold down the "home" button while powering your device back on.
    3. When an image displaying an exclamation mark, etc. appears, press the "search" button.
    4. Use the volume keys to scroll down to "wipe data/factory reset". Select this option using the camera button.
    5. After this is done, reboot your phone.

    Ive done the hard reset and it boots up to the setup wizard. After i complete that it loads black background. It has the time at the top with 3g and signal on the notification bar but no icons in the menu

    So when you pull up the app drawer, there's nothing there?

    You're going to have to ask your friend what he did while he was "rooting" your device.
    My guess is that you or him messed with some files you shouldn't have.

    You can always try getting a copy of someone's /system/ files than copying it to your device.

    You can try downloading the recent OTA update from somewhere, and than applying it as in update.zip through recovery. (not sure on this)

    Anything more to restore it would require the bootloader being cracked. (flashing roms, etc.)
