Question about Computers & Internet
How to clean up disk corruption in your files. I was told it means corruption of my operating system or should I just throw it away.
If you're running a newer version of windows, such as xp or vista, there are utilities built in that take care of this. For the sake of answering, let's assume you're using xp. Using chkdsk c: /f or /r is a part of basic maintenance that can resolve all kinds of issues you've been having. See instructions here and here, and more technical articles here and here.
Also see this article and these links.
If you work through the steps, get rid of the old unused programs, reduce the number of start-ups, and max out the ram installed on your system, you could easily find that it works just fine and you have no need of a new system. It all depends on what you want to do, I guess...
If the corruption is a result of malware, I recommend you follow these instructions.
I hope this information allows you to resolve this issue. If you need further assistance, please post back with a comment to this thread.
