Repairing Installations

If your program begins acting strangely at some point—locking up when you apply a certain template, taking forever to check for your email, giving you errors when you try to choose a specific tool—Windows 7 may be able to repair the installation for you. Not all programs offer this option, but for the ones that do, you can use the tools in the Programs category of the Control Panel to correct any errors that are making your program behave inconsistently.

1. Display the Control Panel and click Programs.
