So I have a machine on my hands that is suffering registry damage due to viruses that I managed to remove but I still can't get the registry repaired since the computer has no recovery partition and the original cd is gone. System restore did nothing so I'm wondering if there is a way to fix the registry with what those things missing. I can give you specs if you need it but please help. Thank you.
The DVD must match what's installed. For example if you have Home Basic OEM then you must use a Home Basic OEM DVD to attempt a repair install. Now, if you want to start over from scratch then you may use any DVD. Just make sure that you have a valid license code for the version you use.
How can I find the exact one she is using so I can sort through my collection. I think I may have it but I don't want to pop them in one by one. It says on her computer properties that its a windows 7 home premium 64 bit but I'm not sure if there is more too it.
