That's the hardest question that I get at work - "It worked fine for xxx months/years, why'd it go bad now?"
And my answer isn't really adequate (but it's the best that I've got). Basically it's that other, misbehaving programs can corrupt it, viruses can corrupt it, heck - even cosmic rays can corrupt it (from a really boring conversation that I had with a couple of folks about data corruption).
But, basically it comes down to "I don't know" - and it'd take folks with a whole heap of knowledge an awful long time to figure out exactly why. And, I don't think that anyone would be willing to pay for all that just to find out "why".
So that leaves us with the art of troubleshooting, rather than a science. A lot of the fixes that are suggested here are based on our experiences and SWAG's (Scientific Wild-A**ed Guess) of why it happened. As we get more and more experience, our guesses usually become more effective.
