Will a windows 7 repair install lose my applications?
Posted on 2014-04-06
My windows 7 ultimate system is doing infinite reboots and I can't get it to stop. I've tried everything recommended. I thought it was a virus, but I think it's a corrupted registry or something like that. It'll start to boot windows, get part way through, and reboot. Endlessly.
If I do a repair install, will that:
1) overwrite my apps? (will I have to reinstall and authenticate everything?)
2) repair my master boot record (if there are issues).
I know this isn't a hardware problem, and I tried Anvira and AVG rescue disks that found 1 item and cleared it. Infinite boot still happens.
