I think I've bricked my HTC Desire by following the 'official' procedure to upgrade the OS to Android 2.3. Please help me restore it to its original state or do anything else to make it work again.

I followed the installation procedure from the HTC web site to manually upgrade my HTC Desire to Android 2.3.3. I ran the upgrade and it said that my phone was successfully upgraded, but once my phone started again after the upgrade, it just kept restarting over and over again. I've tried taking out the battery, but that doesn't help at all.
Is there any way I can restore it back to its original state? If not, is there anything I can do to make it work again? I don't really know much about rooting/installing custom ROMs. Is that something I should look into at this point? Any resources that can help me?
Thank you all for your help. I'm freaking out a fair bit.
P.S. Even though the update to Android 2.3 was 'official', I don't think my warranty will cover it.
