I have some questions about this. First will I still have all my programs and documents on my computer? or is there a chance they will be deleted? Also my windows 7 is already activated so after the installation how do I activate it again? Finally I can just use the installation disk that came with my computer to do this correct? or would it be easier to download an iso?
Thanks

The page explains it as well as I possibly could.
In a nutshell it reverts all the windows properties and core system files to a fresh install state.
You have corrupt system files. I was hoping we could work around it.
This is the best way to restore windows without costing you your data or installed programs.

The only reason a repair install should have problem is if there is actually hardware damage involved.
To be honest I've never actually heard of repair install failing.
You don't have your antivirus running while it's trying to repair do you?

The key will be on a special type of sticker, either on the bottom of your laptop or possibly inside the space the battery goes in.
