Thanks
If everything is working perfectly, explain your need for a repair install??? .... The bozone is getting thick..
I don't think I need it. The other guys said it might be a good ide to be safe. But meh, I'll just skip. It works fine...

You don't need a repair install if your installation is running fine. I only suggested it when you complained about a borked install.

And a repair install (which you don't need if it is running lightniing fast as it should) is run from your desktop choosing Upgrade, as stated.

If everything is working, do not fix it if it is not broken. Make a system image on and external hard drive. Put it away. Make a note of any changes that you make to your OS. Have a prob in the future, restore the image and make the changes that you have written down. No need to do anythiing else
