Windows 7: System repair

System repair

Hello, recently I was getting the blue screen of death on boot up. I used a boot start up on a USB Flash drive and it worked. Then a few days later another BSD. I tried a system restore and the only restore points were in the last few days or the one created the day I first booted up the computer. Now on every boot up the 'Checking file System on C... and count down occurs. The computer still boots up whether I let the count down take place or interrupt it. It usually boots up. A few days ago I got the BSC again on start up, but the computer booted up anyway by itself. I couldn't get the error number on the Blue screen, since it went away too fast.
I was thinking of doing a system repair with my Windows 7 Home Premium disk. Will I lose some programs? Will I have to do the WindowsMail hack again? Maybe I should leave things the way they are. Any advice would be helpful. Thank you Jim

System Repair Disk not booting into repair options
Created it with no problems, apparently at least. My BIOS is set to boot from CD why won't my machine boot from the system repair disk? There were no errors when disk was created. My machine just boots to windows. Anyone else experience this with Win 7 Professional? Any tips?
