Windows 7: Currupt file and start up doesnt work

23 Sep 2012   #1

Windows 7 Home Premium 32bit
Currupt file and start up doesnt work

Well when I turn on my laptop, it just starts at Windows Error Recovery. Then it has two options which are 1. Launch Startup Repair (recommended) and 2. Start Windows Normally. But when I go to the second option it doesnt work and just goes to the first option and that itself doesnt work either. Im just wondering if its possible to take off the currupt file or anything to fix my problem because my laptop doesnt start. I've heard I should do something with windows offline defender. But thank you, if you help me.
I also dont mind if I lose all my stuff, as if I were to set it to factory settings.
