    Repair windows installation maintaining definitions


    My tablet with x86 windows 8.1 at boot shows a message that something wrong happened and shows the blue screen with the repair options.

    I've tried to repair using the only system restore point but with no success. On the next reboot, same blue screen but the only restore point now disappeared.

    If I do the refresh option, will all my definitions, apps and filled be maintained?

    Brink has put together a great tutorial which should explain everything you need to know about Refresh in Windows 8.

It is advisable not to do a full scan for the moment. There was a problem in the latest definition update and in some cases after doing a full scan, if it completes, Windows Defender has been turned off. Microsoft is aware of the problem and is working on it.
