Windows 7 Professional x64

I was having an issue when trying to generate a system health report. Kept getting an error saying the path was not specified so I used this to repair it and worked a treat.
Everything worked as normal when my system rebooted up. All programs working great.
The only things I had to do was change the sounds scheme and theme. All my hardware drivers were still in place....GREAT!!!
