No harm done in making a system restore point before using either.
I wouldn't think it mattered in which order you ran them, but if you think you have disk issues, I would run checkdisk and also the disk utility available from your hard drive manufacturer's web site.
Thanks. My reason for wondering about disk is due to a listing in Event Viewer yesterday but as far as I know it was a one time listing amid several others. I have since cleared EV but will post shot I did yesterday. I thought it was my harddisk but just looked at my System Specs & it looks like my HD is WD? Western Digital?
