Reset?

I have a lot of problems with my Windows 7, and I am not going to reinstall it because of all several un-important reasons.

Is there a way to Master reset the whole Windows 7 installation without loss of disk space? So a master reset or something, or a repair?

Well, I mean I want to keep all my installed files, installed. So I don't want to reinstall Windows, because if I do that, I won't be able to start the programs (registery problems)

Dont know if that is the same with Windows 7, but it always was with XP

Hello Wuxz,

A repair install should be fine for that.

Hope this helps,
Shawn

You will only lose what is outlined in the yellow tip box at the tutorial link above. It's basically nothing major and not eaily changed back though.
