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?

Default 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 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...
If you argue with an idiot he will drag you down to his level and beat you with experience.
