a proper Windows reinstall

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
How would I go about properly reinstalling Windows? NOT reformatting, I'd like to keep my data, I just want to reinstall Windows. Also, whenever friends and I have reinstalled Windows, all of our programs are not available via Start>All Programs. There are no entries. All of the folders are in the All Programs folder but no entries in the start menu. Any way to fix this?

Yes, everything works fine after this. There are just no entries in the Start menu. (besides accessories and all the other folders installed by Windows.)
