    If you have a way of backing up your important documents etc, I would do a clean install.
    I did a repair installation of XP one time and it was less than satisfactory.

    do u mean that there are no advantages behind repairing the OS. does the other files in the HDD get lost during repairing????

    They shouldn't get lost.
    I found that the random problems with the system were still there after the repair.
