Aduino IDE examples dissapeared


the examples that come with the IDE do not show up anymore? The libraries are fine and if I go to "sketch", "add file" I can access them but they fail to show up when trying to scroll through the examples as usual. I deleted the IDE and reinstalled it and it hasn't changed anything. The only thing I can think of is that I updated all of my java and whatnot a couple days ago due to a firefox update.

any ideas?

oh well,I cleaned up my registry and reinstalled it again, nothing changed. No biggies I just threw it all into the 'libraries' folder in 'my documents'.
