Yes, that would be the best approach, Jim. Just re-install PAF into the same directory where you had it before. If it is there, still, the new installation will just overwrite it. Make sure, however, that you close down ALL running programs before attempting to install. Do this by pressing CTRL-ALT-DELETE. Then in the window that pops open select, in turn, each program listed and click END TASK,. Repeat this for all, EXCEPT these two - EXPLORER (your Windows program) and SYSTRAY. When only those two are left, proceed to do a normal Windows install - START|SETTINGS|CONTROL PANEL|ADD/REMOVE|INSTALL and browse to where you have the PAF setup files. Then click OPEN. Just follow the on screen prompts from then on.
