you can do a repair install.

Just boot up from the Windows CD, and then press "R" to repair the OS.

Otherwise, buy some CDs/DVDs, and get ready to backup!

you can't backup your software settings.

You can backup your music files, documents, favorites, etc.

If you are running XP PRO, it has a back-up utility, but i havent used it.
