Windows Vista/op system corruption


QUESTION: how do i check if my vista o/p system is corrupt

ANSWER: Hello John

there is no specific way , as the word "corrupt" cannot be linked to one or two reasons there are many reasons
but usually corrupt means that the system is not usable you cant login or do anything , or partially usable you can do some stuff but not everything else.

checking the event logs by going to control panel - administrative tools - event viewer , looking under applications logs and system logs for error could give you a clue to what is actually going on. but to many errors doesn't mean the system is corrupt .
