Click start then run, type cmd then press enter

At the command prompt type fsutil dirty query c: (or the relevant drive letter). This queries the drive, and more than likely it will tell you that it is dirty.

Next type CHKNTFS /X C: The X tells Windows not to check that particular drive on the next reboot.

Reboot, it should load to the desktop

Once Windows has loaded bring up another CMD prompt and type Chkdsk /f /r c:

This should take you through the 5 stages of the scan and will unset the dirty bit.

At a command prompt, type fsutil dirty query c and Windows will confirm that the dirty bit is not set on that drive.

Hi i typed fsitil dirty query c: and it said the drive is not dirty.

But more important, my initual problem of the computer restarting occured again today. I had to use HDD regenarator again to recover the boot sector that was damaged. I think when xp is loading, it is looking for the relevent system files and when it checks my hard drive, that damaged boot sector can't be read so it restarts the pc. I think it is the same damaged boot sector as before since both damaged boot sectors were between 140gb-145gb when checking with HDD regenarator.

Do you think i will need a new hard drive? what would you recommend me to do?

Can you run all the ones you can from here

Items in blue which are underlined are clickable to give more information about the process

Click start then run, type prefetch then press enter, click edit then select all, right click any file then click delete, confirm delete

Click start, all programmes, accessories, system tools to run disc clean up, then from system tools, run disc defragmenter.

Click start then run, type sfc /scannow then press enter, you need the XP CD and Windows File Protection will show a blue onscreen progress bar, when the bar goes, reboot

If you do not have an XP CD you can borrow a same version as was originally installed XP CD, if you downloaded SP2 then you need an SP1 XP CD

Click start then run, type chkdsk /f /r then press enter, type Y to confirm for next boot, press enter then reboot.

Windows will appear to load normally then either the monitor will show progress or the screen will go blank, do not disturb this.

This will take an hour or so before it gets to the desktop.

Download and install Tune Up 2006 Trial

Run Tune Up Disc Clean Up

Run Tune Up Registry Clean Up

Click Optimize and Improve to run Reg Defrag, which will take a few minutes and need a reboot. You should disable the antivirus programme to run this and check it is running after the reboot

After the reboot, click optimize then system optimizer to optimize the computer, select computer with an internet connection from the drop down menu, this also requires a reboot

After the reboot, click optimize then system optimizer to accelerate downloads, select the speed just above your actual connection speed, this requires a reboot

After the reboot, click optimize then system optimizer to run system advisor

Hi Keith

I had a couple of problems.

I had no problems with prefetch and sfc /scannnow. Once sfc /scannow was done i rebooted the pc, the initual problem of xp not loading and restarting the pc occured. I used HDD regenarator to recover the damaged boot sector. Instead of xp loading normally like the previous two attempts, the restarting occured again. This time i was able to access safe-mode so i went to safe-mode and went to a previous restore point long before the problems occured.

I did the chkdsk /f /r and the sysytem is clean. I also did all the tune-up with no problems.

Is there anything else i should do?
