    All my programms disappeared after 1803 upgrade

    A few days ago my laptop with windows 10 home upgraded to 1803 with success.
    So I decided to upgrade and my desktop. It's a dual boot system (windows XP Pro and Windows 10 Pro).
    It took about 5 hours to complete upgrade, restart normally, answered all questions and shutdown. Next boot stuck at a black screen(no windows logo) with a spinning circle.
    After many things I tried (chkdsk, sfc, dism etc) my system stuck after welcome screen but with black screen and only mouse cursor. With Alt+Ctrl+Del went to task manager and saw there were 2 extra folders : Windows.old and
    I followed all these suggestions with no luck.
    So I tried a Repair Installation Repair Install Windows 10 with an In-place Upgrade from Windows DVD. After one hour everything seemed to be ok but my programms had disappeared.
    Searching my hard disk I found that all programms 'transfered' to folder, not to Windows.old.
    So how can I restore my programms from folder ?

    Thank you for your reply

    Program folders are in folder. Only Acrobat is in normal position (Program Files\Acrobat)

    It would be safes and quicker in the long run to just reinstall them. You could copy program files from the backup but it would depend if the dllsneeded are within windows and registered. Before doing anything you need to create a system image with any free cloning software in case it messes up
