If you do a repair installation click here then all of the rest of your data should be fine, but that will not always cure major problems but if you do a clean install click here then everything will need to be reinstalled.

if you go for a reinstall fierst of all plan the following.

you have the windows cd & key number

back up to dvd/cd/floppy any personal files/photos/docs etc

download latestest drivers for your hardware and save to dvd/cd.

make a note of your ISP internet & email settings.

make sure you have copies of all the programs you want to reload & their serial numbers first.

install your firewall/antivirus ASAP
