Sorry, but there is insufficient information here to diagnose your

Whatever it is, you will probably need to reinstall Stata (and
then -update- to Stata 9.2).
I would try the update first, just in the wild hope that would fix everything. It sounds more serious than that though.

As far as losing downloaded programs, if they are all in a place like c:\ado, they will likely survive ok. I sometimes copy c:\ado from one machine on to another, so that my Stata configuration will be consistent. The main thing to be careful of is profile.do, as the settings in it may or may not need to differ across machines.

This would also be a good time to back up the whole computer just in case it is dying!
