Running a repair install will leave your data and settings as they are now, but fix this

It does take a couple of hours when you include the updates but will be as quick as hunting for files, especially when you cannot find the service pack entries, which would be an update thing usually

i have done..no responce.
i can only get into MY "account" (through safe/comman prompt)..and when i do, same sutaution, no tool bar..when i press cntrl, alta nd delt to get the task manager, it would freeze!!

And as i have already performed the UPDATE INSTALLATION, has it affected the "last working mode" ??
Update and repair installaton is the same thing right?
