Start, Run, type in

VoG.... just a query what will happen if i type that in coz we know next to nothing about pcs and dont know what that will do and why we need the windows cd?? probably worried over nothing ...

System File Checker - it will scan your system files and replace any damaged ones from the CD. It will prompt for the CD if needed.
