my 2 cents:
Buy a new hard drive
take the old hard drive out and set it to the side
install windows on new hard drive
install applications on new hard drive
copy files off of old hard drive onto new hard drive by setting old hard drive as the slave
*Be sure to make the Primary partition large enough to handle all you apps when installing windows on your new hard drive.
I suggest this because you can get rid of any spyware,, malware you may have and get rid of apps that you are no longer using at the same time.
I have been in your shoes and it is a pain but you will happy with the added speed you get out of starting from scratch again! Run the necessary tweeks from this forum as well. They are really useful.
