All the data there looks present and correct - the missing items are because your system is 32-bit rather than 64-bit.

That being the case, I have no ide where to look next, and can only suggest a repair install.

Thanks Noel for all the time and effort! I'm prepping to do the repair install and we'll see how that goes.

Well the repair install worked fine. The only annoyance is that I need to install about a billion widows updates now but otherwise everything looks good.
