Will Vista Recovery CD cure problems?

  buel 11:59 23 Nov 2009

Hi, as you may have read i have recently downloaded a Vista Recovey cd which has saved my gf's laptop from needing a fresh install (it wouldn't boot up so i chose the repair option of the cd). My query is this:
My friend has a Vista laptop that used to freeze up until i performed a disk check it found many errors and fixed them and the laptop no longer freezes, would there be ANY benefit in running the Vista Recovery cd on his working laptop to cure any/all errors/faults that have not yet become apparent?

i believe if it ain't broke don't fix it.a pc can be a temperamental beast.

Just keep Antivirus, Spyware & Malware scanners updated and only use recovery disk as a last resort if it does get problems that cannot be fixed any other way.
