Reinstall Windows


The Windows operating system typically does not need to be reinstalled. However, there are instances in which the files needed to run Windows properly might have become corrupted:

  • The user has installed and removed applications numerous times and a file that is necessary has been deleted or has become corrupted.
  • A virus, worm, or trojan (malware) has infected important files so Windows cannot operate properly.
  • The computer will not boot from the hard drive.
