Yes somehow a reinstall may cut your losses and resolve the problem, and I would personally steer clear of those add on programs that claim to make the machine better in soem way or other.

Main thing is that you can get all your data backed up first and personally I keep all of the programs I use as downloads or download them to a stick which makes it easy to reinstall them instead of hunting down them on the net.
