    Before I go ahead with this, can I be sure that my installed programs such as Photoshop and Microsoft Office 2016 will survive and not need to be reinstalled?

    Yes, you can. In-place upgrade and repair installs only replace Windows system files, everything else like your installed software and personal data remains intact.

    Hey Everyone,

    I have been working on my new strategy when things go out of wack with my PC from using tools like Macrium to make image backups to clean installing correctly etc. and I then I came across this tutorial again. It was great to hear that by doing a in-place upgrade could possibly correct any issues that I might have in the future instead of doing a clean install all the time and having to take multiple days to reinstall everything and reset the settings and program settings etc.

    So, my question is, when should I consider this option? What exactly could this help me for? Would this remove malware or virus type stuff? Would this fix app-software issues? or is it still better to stick with clean installing Windows?

    I did try to research more about couldn't seem to find yet the answers to my questions. Thank you very much!

    Hello Jeff,

    Usually, you could try a repair install to fix issues with Windows 10 when the normal fixes don't help.

    A repair install will not help with a virus or malware.

    A repair install may not necessarily help with app issues unless it's a default app included with Windows 10. No guarantees on this part though since it really depends on what's the cause of the app issue.

    I would always advise to keep a good system image back available to be safe.

    Hey Shawn!

    Oh well, better luck next time. Most likely I will have to stick to the same method I have been using.

    Can you give me a few examples of some Windows 10 issues that this in-place repair/upgrade could work?

    Have Macrium locked and loaded, but still in the process of learning more.

    Thank you!

    I'd say it should apply to just about any issue with the Windows 10 OS itself.

    Thank you!

    Also, if I were to do this for any issue with Windows 10 OS itself, one of the to do's is to remove an installed AV. Would Norton Security Suite be considered one of these to remove when doing this method?

    You should at least temporarily disable any 3rd party AV program to prevent it from possibly interfering with the repair install causing it to fail and revert back to where you were before starting.

    Excellent! Thank you for answering my questions as always! I hope your day is going well. Until next time! Unless I forget something else to ask.
