If you have the installation files, run Setup from within Windows 7. No need to burn or boot anything. Run Setup and choose Upgrade which will reinstall the OS while saving all programs, files and settings in place. You just need to reactivate afterwards.
If you have an .iso then unzip it using 7zip, WinRAR, PowerISO, etc. and run as above.
What exactly is the problem you are trying to solve? I am a repair install fan, and can tell you if it will help.
I have .iso
This is the problem: Right click menu turned to old style
I am at school now and on a MAC so I can't remember exactly how to get to Themes, but that's what I would check first. I believe it is rightclick Desktop>Personalize and make sure Theme is set to Windows 7.
Also look at Computer>Properties>Advanced Settings>Advanced Graphics settings (first choice) and make sure all boxes are checked.
Others may have more specific suggestions, but I believe you are right that a Repair Install will reset this since it reinstalls the OS.
Extract the files from the .iso and run Setup.
