Besides the application data he's currently working on, he's especially concerned about losing e-mail addresses, e-mail, and his Internet Explorer Favorites.

How to Repair a Corrupt Windows 7 Installation

"Every operating system needs an occasional repair job, and Windows 7 is no exception. Whether the source of the problem is corrupt data, a particularly brutal piece of malware, or some other serious issue, you'll occasionally have to reinstall your copy of Windows.

Wiping your hard drive and performing a fresh installation can be a huge headache; but fortunately there's a way to repair a corrupt Windows 7 installation while keeping all your programs, personal data, and user accounts intact. With Windows 7 you can perform an in-place upgrade installation to repair a flaky existing install. Though technically designed to upgrade older Windows operating systems like Vista, the in-place upgrade installation option can also be used to repair an existing installation of Windows 7."

Here's what How-To Geek says:

 

"If you’re having boot problems on your Windows PC, it’s often helpful to repair the MBR (Master Boot Record) to restore the Windows 7 boot loader—and you can do it easily from the Windows installation disc.

 

"If your PC starts booting into Windows but fails, you should probably try using Safe Mode instead.

 

"The first thing you’ll need to do is boot off the install disc, and then click through until you see the “Repair your computer” link in the lower left-hand corner."

 

From there they recommend clicking on Command Prompt and following instructions. Good luck.
