|I have reinstalled windows recently.|
i didnt format the hard drive to save various bits of data without needing to backup
the reinstall has fixed the initial problem and i have got everything working fine however many of my programs have stopped working and needed to be reinstalled, others (mostly games and small utilities) still work but are not detected by windows in the 'programs and features' menu.
so my question is: how do i add programs to 'programs and features'?
and also was there a better way of me reinstalling windows that would have saved me all the bother?
and finally did i need to reinstall the programs that didnt work? or is there a way to fix them for future referance.
i havnt had many os related problems in the past so i'm a bit of a nubben when it comes to backuping os reinstallation.
