BBM's disappeared

I got a bbm a few days back mentioning about some new update, i clicked & after the "update" the BBM disappeared. What's worse is that when I tried to download the BBM again, it says BlackBerry Messengar already exisits. Replace? Yes, I did. But it didn't work... I probably downloaded it but it still doesn't appear. Any1 who's on my list can continue to send me BBM's & it shows that the messages are delivered!!!!


Its the same story with my Blackberry App world. 


Pls help !!!
