I have a quick question, When using the recovery console, And Doing A Repair install, Is there an option So that i can repair windows, Without losing all my music files movie files, etc?
or is it like formatting a hard drive and losing everything?

This is a link to instructions for a Windows "repair/install". If done right it will replace your Windows files and leave your data and installed programs intact. The downside is you will need to install ALL the Windows updates again. Good Luck
and you will still have any nasty viruses there as well....i found out the hard way...and still have a looping problem....umg
