Help restore programs from Windows.old folder

Hi i recently compressed my C:/drive not knowing that it wouldnt read the sys operating files... the error was win 7 wouldnt boot and said press ctrl alt del to restart... SO...i attempted to install Windows 7 thinking that it would then have a bootmgr and soforth boot up..not the case, any how i fixed the issue but now the new instalation is running instead of the old...and all my programs worth over 4 grand are in windows Old and will not function... my question? Is there a way to get rid of the new version and go back to my origonal? without haveing to wipe my C:/ drive? or is there a way to allow those programs to function again... pls help me every second counts as i was in the middle of important workrelated projects... thanks so much
