pitstop scan will not delete or cause any loss of downloaded programs or files.Have you done a search via find files for your programs or looked for the folder where they were stored?

Have you done a systems restore, back before doing the pitstop scan to see if all is there?

Do you have another account name on your system to open and to check for lost programs.Also try the safe mode select/admin and look from in there.

I think its an IE security option to allow IE pluggins and active x so i would think it a setting there that has changed,if when you did pcpitstop you clicked the option to allow them to mend it.
