  1. hi
    my system32 file has gone corrupt and therefor the whole system floped. i had to install windows all over again. i would like to ask what was it that made my file gone bad, in order to prevent it in the future.
    if you create a new folder within the system32, will it affect the whole system32 folder??
    Are there certain viruses that correupt the folder?

    thank u in advance.

    I don't have enough knowledge to answer your specific questions, but yes, trojans and viruses can wreck havoc on an OS. Some are so lethal that they will replicate themselves and spread throughout your system.

    Do you have a router, anti-virus, program, spyware protection, and a firewall?
