I lost the Default Style somehow in CE 2012.1

I had a pretty bad crash and afterwards, CE gets kind of crazy when I try to add a rule or look at any models that aren't created from the geospatial data. All models are completely untextured now. I even tried loading one of the example projects and everything is still a mess. I attached a screen shot of what happens when I try to look at the ModernStreets project. I just tried to reassign modernstreets.cga to bring up the error about the default style. Is there any way I can repair this installation without losing what I have?

- close CE, delete the '.cityengine' folder in your user account, restart CE
- create new workspace and try there.

That did cause me to start a new project but the behavior seems to be similar. I just had it build me a small city and it gave me a ton of "Can't generate geometry" errors.

I didn't really understand them since there were so many, I grabbed one road segment and told it to generate it gave me that same error so I went into the dialog from the log tab.

Under Message: Can't generate geometry. The rule file '/Wizard_Cities/rules/textured_city_day1.cga' contains errors. - [main]

Is that meaningful to you? It's suggest to me that I messed up ajava installation somehow. I know less than nothing about java and haven't installed myself it so there must be some java environment somewhere but I haven't the faintest clue which application put it there.
