Just a question. Can I run the system file checker tool in vista? If so, would I need a genuine Microsoft Vista operating system disk in order to replace any missing or corrupted files should any be found corrupted or missing? I do not have a vista disk. I know in XP you had to use the Microsoft Disk in order to replace missing or corrupted files. I think I have read some where that the files can be found in a compressed area of the hard drive.

The i386 folder is last used for XP and in Vista it is compressed or found on the disc installer.

If so, would I need a genuine Microsoft Vista operating system disk in order to replace any missing or corrupted files should any be found corrupted or missing?

 

Yes or borrow one or see this http://www.vistax64.com/tutorials/66978-system-files-sfc-command.html

I thought maybe you needed a windows vista disc to do this. I checked the website you listed jhayz. Very good information there. Thank you very much.
