yes, just copy it to another computer and run
Code:
bitcoin-qt.exe -rescan

It is pitch black. You are likely to be eaten by a grue.

Did it work? Otherwise you could delete everything on the Bitcoin appdata folder, and let it resync completely.
BUt you shoud backup your wallet.dat first.

If you are in a hurry to sent some coins away and don't want to wait days to resync, you can export you private keys from bitcoin core and import them into a light client such as Electrum or Multibit.

If you really would like to use bitcoin core, you can download a "bootscrap.dat" via bittorrent and import it into bitcoin core. It is usually only 2/3 weeks behind.

The link to the bootstrap.dat torrent is https://bitcoin.org/bin/blockchain/bootstrap.dat.torrent or you can find it on the bitcoin.org page download page https://bitcoin.org/en/download.

To find it yourself without trusting these links is to go to the bitcoin home page https://bitcoin.org/en/, then getting started,choose your wallet,bitcoin core download,bootstrap.dat.

https://bitcoin.org/bin/blockchain/bootstrap.txt
The current bootstrap.dat includes blocks up till 295000, so it would be 8-9 weeks behind.
