Windows 7: How do I fix system files that were corrupted during update?

How do I fix system files that were corrupted during update?


This is my first post to these forums and I am in dire need of some help.

My computer was installing the latest updates for windows 7 professional 64 bit and the battery died durring the shut down process, and now when I start the computer it will allow me to log in but when it hits the desktop it freezes up completely.

I have tried using the system restore but somehow my restore points cant be found anywhere and when I tried using the system repair option on the installation cd it says it cant because the problem is unfixable. The error it says it has is in the boot sector and it says the error code is 0x45d, but when I ran it a second time it didnt say that.

I really dont want to deal with pulling off all of my personal files and then installing a fresh copy of windows because that would be too much of a hassle, but if i have to i will.

I look forward to your guys' answer.
