Opinion about re-installing 2011 from CD

I downloaded and installed 2011 Pro. I also purchased the CD when came later. I have had problems with the Contact Detail View and Preferences. An online tech worked on the issues but it's still a little sluggish and occassionally performs strange changes to the Contact view. They told me Preferences were "corrupt".


I suspect that the Internet download "glitched" and caused some files to be corrupted.


I am now wondering if I should (of course after making a good backup on an external drive) install the CD. And maybe remove the current  install first. Then restore the DB from the backup.


Anyone have an opinion on that?
