Repair Vista x64 Home Premium?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
My laptop runs Vista x64 Home Premium and has been really slow comparatively lately. I didnt get a disc with my laptop, but I want to basically just redo the windows files leaving my data and stuff in tact because there is to much to move to just do a clean install. I looked for viruses and all of that and other "usual" performance fixes and it still lags. Windows explorer also crashes alot now and really I just want to fix the whole windows install. So. No disc(at least I dont think I have this OS on a disc. Other vistas, yes), want to reinstall or redo windows. What can be done? Thanks guys!

Personally I would run Memtest86+ as well as a 'long' SeaTools scan on the drive before proceeding.

Did that with no issues found. I am really sure its just the OS files and want them repaired or replaced. Any ideas? I downloaded the iso from MSDN or whatever on microsofts site, but I am not sure how to just repair it. Just like installing? Any way to do it from the desktop?

There's a 'repair' install if you boot from a windows disk, but it won't necessarily remove all of the junk.

It isn't about junk, it is about completely redoing the OS install and leaving all of my personal files in other folders intact. There is to much on this laptop to just do a fresh install or I would. There are no viruses or anything, just some broken or modified OS files that aren't working at their best overall so I want to start fresh in that way. A registry clean helped alot, but redoing all of the Vista files will go alot further. Thanks for the help!
