My girlfriends computer had some pretty serious malware problems and I got those all cleaned up but I think that in the process it may have screwed up some of her important system files. The computer is working alright at the moment but I find it hard to leave things as they are when I know it is going to cause more trouble in the long run. I tried using the recovery console to repair an installation but it would only let me do a clean instal, but I don't want to have to reformat the drive and lose all her files. Is it possible for me to install a second operating system on a seperate partition and then transfer her files to the new partition and operating system? And then having transfered the files to erase the old partition and the old operating system. Please let me know if this is a possible solution. Thank you.
