When I've done a WindowsXP repair install it has worked successfully, but then my previously installed programs do not work and I have to re-install them again. Has anyone seen this behavior before? Is there a way around this?
if the programs you installed before the repair, depended on system files to install and operate correctly, or, installed its own system files into the system, then, the repair cancelled those files out, thus the reinstall of the programs
