Sure, you could delete the old certificates and start over.
There are several ways how to do this, depending on how much you would want to 
delete. For example you could delete your public certificates with Kleo.
Or you can search for the GNUPG directory holding everything and delete it.

Have you checked in the Compendium, it is quite useful, 
you can reach it from http://gpg4win.org/documentation.html

In short:
Often people use several "uid"s, each with an email address of them
for one certificate/key pair.

So one "key", several email addresses.

The picture does not help me much to see what the issue is.
Usually the (public) certificate and the related private "keypart"
are saved within the GNUPG own store (which consists out of folders and files 
that look differently).
