XP Repair - Vry Urgent....

  Gaz 25 18:52 20 Feb 2003

I have a friend, now they need to do an XP Repair.

I know how to do it and mailed them the instructions, but will it wipe any files, drivers, e-mails, contacts, Dial-up connections?

Or will it just repair all the OS Files?


PS. Nver had to do it thast why I dont know this!!! LOL

Amazingly I 'repaired' an XP system today that would not boot up. Inserted disk and chose 'return to factory settings'. If you do this (it works well)) you WILL lose all personal info and any progs that were loaded after the purchase of the computer.

Gaz it will not wipe anything, but it will kill any downloaded updates.

Profile info to follow hopefully tomorrow.
