    You can try do a repair install so you dont lose your programs.... check at this link;
    http://tinyurl.com/1h3r
    Read it carefully, [the Repair Install section]..... note where you press the 'r' during the install process-not the first time! or you lose those programs... make backups however where possible; let us know if you need more advice if that site isn't too clear.
