No it's not right. Have you used an upgrade and selected to carry over all your programs, etc. ?
Try this, once on the start page go to right corner (I use a mouse cursor) and select search. Using the bar at the bottom scroll to right. Right click the command prompt app and in the bottom, select 'run as administrator'. Type sfc/scannow in the command prompt window and let it run. It will fix some problems possibly. Close the command prompt window by typing 'exit'.
Reboot and see if any better. If not, repeat the process a few times. If it still doesn't work then in my humble opinion you will need to reinstall without carrying over anything, after you back-up all your documents, photos etc. Your programs will need to be reinstalled.
