Hi all...

Thanks for the continuing help...

here is where I am at...

I think I need a repair install (based on the learned advice from above), but I have no win 7 disc as it was form an upgrade via the web.

How can I achieve the repair without one? Is it possible? Can I do it via the web again?

I really do not want to do a fresh install as I have mucho programs and info!!

I have read about each system repair option below and none seem to fix my problems...
All help here greatly appreciated.

Thanks.

Ok.. at this point you will need to obtain a copy of Windows 7 disc to do the repair install, or, reinstall the OS ...

Hi.

Is this really my only option? I have already paid for win 7 - can I do this via oem or win 7 download (as I have bought legit first)? I do not want to have to pay 100 to buy the disk?

no, no win7 disc - can i not repair install from web upgrade (half the cost of official disc)?

Or download free from peer to peer - as I have product key?

You will want to do a startup repair unless you have a system image you can restore.

Since you have a product key, you can download and create a disk. Be careful about downloading from peer to peer. You do not want a hacked copy or one loaded with nasties. Your best bet would be to borrow a CD from a friend.
