Default What does *Repair* do in XP?

I understand that you don't loose data -but what exactly *does* it do? -will it restart Services that I had stopped? -Will it Move folders back to their original locations?
Any info would be appreciated.
Thanks,
522.

Replaces system files with their default versions. Same with built in XP apps.
Reenumerates hardware devices and returns drivers to their default levels, which can include uninstalled.
Removed XP hotfixes and system restore points.


Thats about it.
