Fixing Damaged Windows System Files
Sometimes you’ll find an important Windows file has been damaged, for instance Internet Explorer will tell you a critical file won’t load.
Windows has built in tool called the System File Checker which will reload system files. SFC (System File Checker) has been part of Windows since Windows 98.
To run it, disconnect from the Internet, turn off all programs including virus protection and security programs, insert your original system or Windows CD and then click Start and Run, then type SFC /Scannow The System File Checker will take up to an hour to run.
At the end of the scan, remove your CD and reboot your computer.
