Hi Dan,

If you have accidentally deleted your public_html folder, you can re-create it by using the File manager available at your cPanel area.

Simply create a new folder named public_html and set its permissions to 751. Once you re-create the public_html directory you should be able to uninstall, clean-up and then re-install your FrontPage extensions.
to re-install your extensions do the following:

cPanel -> FrontPage Extensions -> Uninstall FrontPage extensions -> Clean up extensions -> Install FrontPage Extensions
