Hello,
before I try a Fixboot or Fixnbr to try and resolve a problem I have can
Someone tell me what each command does and if it works am I likely to get
back the same Windows Environment I had before my system stopped working?

Hi,

Whether or not they would help depends on what is wrong.

Fixboot writes a new boot sector to the designated partition (usually C:\)

Fixmbr repairs the master boot record.

More details on both can be found in the Help & Support files, but again
whether or not they will fix your problem depends largely on what is
actually wrong.
