One of the most critical components of any computer. It houses most of the applications that your computer needs to operate. Generally, if modified in any way (except with the help of an I.T. guy) it will cause your computer not to work. This often comes up when someone is in a forum asking for technical support. Someone may suggest deleting System 32, which would cause the computer to become useless. There are also numerous spam emails, suggesting that they have "found" a virus in System 32, promting a deletion of a certain file.
