For no other reason other than just curious, can you do a windows repair in Vista in the same way as can be done in XP.

Start up repair Vista with the Vista DVD.

Without the disc and If Startup Repair is a preinstalled recovery option on your computer.

Then expand the section "how do I use Startup Repair?"

May want to check click here I havent tried this, other than downloading and burning the disc, but looks promising (I have an OEM machine)

Thanks anskyber and DippyGirl, on the odd occasions for friends and neighbours I have had to do a XP repair which is fairly straight forward. Never having the need to do this on Vista machine I am somewhat scared if called on to do the same on a Vista machine. Anyway thanks again to both of you for your help.
