my family has two computers I have one and the other is for everyone you know a family computer.

the family computer is a Dell and runs XP and the files that are corrupted on it are a sysetm file and the other is from Microsoft money 2005.

I need to know how to fix corruption and to stop files from being corrupted.

First, what files are corrupted...how do you know?

How they get corrupted is....complicated. Turning the computer off by pulling the power rather than shutting down is a good way. Programs open files all the time...if a program crashes suddenly, it can corrupt the open files
