Moving Programs

Following on from my black screen scenario, I had to do a complete fresh install after everything else failed. However; following my fresh install all my old programes have been saved in the same partition under a folder named windows old. My question is does anybody know how I can get these programes to run again in my new installation, or do I have to reinstall them as well. Any help on this greatly appreciated, my OS is Windows Vista Ultimate if that helps.

The best route is totally fresh installation.
Who knows what parts of a program were corrupted or not by the previous failure.
Certainly there will be elements that wont transfer.

Start from scratch - a pain but the best.
