Asked here daily...

Probably not.
There are 3 possible outcomes with this:
  1. It works just fine
  2. It fails completely
  3. It "works", but you're chasing issues for weeks/months
I've seen all 3.

Increasingly, #3 is becoming more common.

A fresh OS install is always recommended, usually required.
