Default System Restor

IF I do a system restore, will I lose my programs and data? or is it saved and it just restores the OS?

well....it all depends on what you backed up and stuff....if you just did a normal backup, then, it will just fix the window's stuff...if you backed up everything..it will go back to what you had when you backed up.

Shoot. sorry, not a system restore. I can't get into my OS. I want to do a repair, not a restore.

um, a system restore will ONLY restore windows system files and registry settings... I think you are thinking of a restore from a manual running of system backup. doing a repair install (note, not repair console) it will not remove any files, you may have to install some apps, though...
