When you say your programs don't work, do they not work when you double click the Desktop icons?
Can you run them from the Start menu?
Does going into the programs folder, and double clicking the executable (.exe) work?

Both. all programs from both desktop and start menu. If i double click it, nothing happens. The only programs that still have their original icon is MS office (eg word, powerpoint) and Windows Media. If i want to use a program i need to right click the icon and "open with". But this most of the time doesnt work either.
