Since you haven't mentioned why you're doing this in the first place, all I can suggest is reading this. It includes details on the various options available to you.

I am trying to fix windows image error which is more annoying then anything else and certainly is not worth reinstalling windows 

 

I read through the guide you posted but if I do this repair option will my programs stil be installed or will they need to be reinstalled

Ths link is more detailed, a repair install only overwrites the OS and does not do a format. As always there is always a chance that something coud go wrong so the best thing to do is create and image backup of the drive. If you do not do this there is a chance of losing everything. To be extra safe also  backup all you personal files such as pic, vids, favorites, MS files, ect, anything you cannot afford to lose.
