A far more serious problem that can cause you computer to crash is hard disk errors. Data is stored in units on the hard disk called sectors. These sectors can become damaged or corrupt. Sometimes new hard disks can have faulty sectors due to the manufacturing process, but they are marked and given more space to make up for the damaged ones. If you try and access a file that is on one of these bad sectors, then your system will crash. Over time, your hard disk will get more bad sectors. What’s more is that if you bump your computer tower, and the head that reads the information on the disk makes contact with the disk itself, it can cause a massive scratch, which will result in serious data loss as well as system crashes.

The HP / Microsoft Slate will be able to get viruses, “registry errors” and old misplaced files crammed into the start Menu, all because it runs Windows.
