    Today I restarted in Windows 7 using BootChamp in Mac OS X.
    During startup, suddenly I got a message saying there's a Windows Error Recovery. I got two options:
    - Launch Startup Repair
    - Start Windows Normally
    I chose the first option, which brought me to another screen where I could choose for a System Restore. I did this as well, where-after Windows started normally.

    Once in Windows I noticed Civilization V had been removed. That was the last thing I was playing last time I was on Windows 7. It worked great, now and then when there was a lot happening on the screen, it would be lagging a bit. But overall it held up and didn't crash or whatsoever. So I hadn't forseen any problems.

    Is this something I should be worried about? Or can I just re-install Civ V and see whether I get this problem more often?

    This could be caused by any number of things - the simplest is that Windows wasn't shut down correctly last time. If that's the case (and based on your usage it most likely was), this isn't something to worry about unless it recurs.

    The System Restore command takes your computer back to a previously-saved state. In your case, it seems prior to your install of Civilization 7. Yes, re-install it and see how it goes.

    I've reinstalled Civ V and it works just fine, at least for now...
    Btw, is it wise to always use the recommended option... like in this case starting Windows Repair...
