Startup Repair launches automatically when Windows 7 crashes. Sometimes you can bypass it, sometimes you can’t. For those times when I could, usually I often found that the computer wouldn’t boot all the way into Windows. With XP this was a suck-fest and could kill your whole day’s productivity.
Microsoft’s Startup Repair has saved my bacon on no fewer than FIVE borked Windows boxes, including the one I use to make megabucks for my day-job employer.
So, thanks Microsoft. You got that one pretty well right.
Then again, when you can bypass Startup Repair, sometimes you might find that you didn’t need it in the first place and Windows was just fine.
