    ok so listen, i somehow edited the symlink and now the /applications folder points to /private/var/root folder and i dont know what to direct it to, so all my apps got lost somewhere, so i cant back them up with ibackup, and restoring and putting everything back will take me AT LEAST a week, and i dont have the time. If you save me THANK YOU SO MUCH YOU MADE MY CRAPPY DAY INTO A GOLDEN NIGHT

    If anyone knows how to delete a symlink on winscp or where the applications folder is supposed to direct to, i might be able to fix

    couldn't you temporarily install terminal.app and then via the ln command create the correct link?
    or maybe if wireless is still on and you installed openssh you could ssh into it?

    just thinking out loud here.

    Applications folder should just be /Applications
    no symlink, unless you used bosstool to move your apps to have more room.

    these are somewhat the commands bosstool does for you:
    cp -r /Applications /private/var/Applications
    rm -fr /Applications
    ln -s /private/var/Applications /Applications

    BE CAREFULL: using the rm -rf command wrongly could erase everything.

    to use winscp check here: http://winscp.net/eng/docs/task_link
