Application software has never, in my decades of experience, corrupted any OS (and I don't count viruses or malware as "application software.")
You are, however, giving people very good advice with regard to having a backup protocol and taking full system image backups on a routine cycle. The number of things that have the potential to cause a system to crash are numerous, and generally related to people screwing around with the OS itself in ways they shouldn't or drive failure. Having a backup saves you untold time and grief.
