you should not but do a backup first

to run a system file check type cmd in search. Theen right click the window and run as admin. type sfc /swcannow.
even if you dont have any more BSOD's you should still have a backup

Careful for the typos. It should be sfc /scannow.

I ran the sfc/scannow at i have had one BSOD in 5 days.

Should i run another one or do the repair install?

Well running the sfc /scannow again never hurts. Sometimes it fixes more files the next time.

If that doesn't work, I'd advise a Repair Install.

Like my friend Ken said earlier, you may need to do a Repair Install. No, you will not lose your programs or data. You may notice certain things are reset, like Internet Explorer, but not too big a deal.

I don't think the repair install will delete the old dmp files. If you want, you can delete them all now.

Do you mean that you have gotten more BSODs since the repair?
