    It appears that I have one or two corrupt Windows 7 files which is slowing my computer down somewhat.

    Without having to do a complete re-install, is there another way to do say a repair install or something where I can use the Windows 7 disk I have or something and get files from the internet or something so that I do not disturb all the other software on the computer.

    Doing a complete re-install is something I would like to avoid for obvious reasons. It's not just the inslalling of Windows is it!!!

    Any help would be appreciated.

    First of all, what is telling you that you have one or two corrupt files and which files are they?

    Secondly, booting using Last Known Good Configuration is only recommended when the system won't boot which doesn't seem to be the case here.

    Do the following in your computer:

    Download and save the TSG System Information Utility (SysInfo.exe) file to the desktop.

    After it's been downloaded and saved, double-click it to run it.
