Just joined forum -i upgraded from Windows7 to 8 and then 8.1 downloaded - no disc. Today Desktop will not load- says System 32 missing file needs repair.....no disc...
Googled and it seems the repair is on the drive somewhere but how do I access it?

There were two options - press F8 and I think Settings but nothing happens with either of those.

Have moderate experience but never reformatted and do not want to lose my files.
Operating system is on C Drive and Documents etc on a partition.

Any simple instructions would be so appreciated OR do I need a PC shop..

Download and create windows 8.1 setup media (link in my sig below)

Insert disk and then hold shift key and hit restart to get to the recovery options

or reboot boot and power down three times in a row.. 3 failed attemts to load windows will trigger the recovery options
