Installing windows 7

  J. I. 10:55 07 Oct 2010

My windows 7 home premium has gone corrupt and been advised to re-install windows from original disk. Fortunately at this time there is nothing of importance on comp so have nothing to lose. Is it possible to re-install windows over windows with windows already installed, or is there a better method of doing it. If i can do it myself will spare cost of taking to expensive outlet.

Thanks Joni

I know that you can do a repair which might be a better choice.
And if that does not work properly a reformat would be needed.
But best waiting for some better advice as I am no expert.
