Read here: "How to Perform a Windows XP Repair Install" http://www.michaelstevenstech.com/XPrepairinstall.htm
But the way you ask makes it appear that you think this is a magical
panacea to fix everything. Be aware that it is *not*; it solves *some*
problems, and does nothing for others.
A repair installation normally does not affect your data or programs.
But you should also be aware that there are no guarantees that it
always works perfectly. However unlikely, it's always possible that
something might go wrong. For that reason it's prudent to be sure you
have a backup of anything you can't afford to lose before beginning.
