I was wondering for the windows repair program if there was a way for it to detect problems on your computer and only fix those problems instead of running all of the fixes?

It can't detect what is wrong with your system - it can only run the repairs that you select.

Windows has its own tools for doing that which are -

chkdsk /f

chkdsk /r

sfc /scannow

For Win 8 and above - dism /online /cleanup-image /restorehealth

You would normally run that command first and then run a sfc /scannow to confirm there was no system corruption.

However, a sfc /scannow can't fix all problems and a Google will usually bring up links either for a MS fix or links that include solutions that have worked for some.

In extreme cases, a repair install may be the only answer.
