Hi Longhorns242. Check for Dirty Drive
To check for a Dirty Bit, first. Click Start, then Run, type cmd, and
click "Ok". At the command prompt, type fsutil dirty query c:
then hit enter
(This queries the drive and will tell you if it is dirty).
if it say yes do this

Start, my computer, open, click on Local Disk (C:) ,
Right click, click on properties, click on tools, and pick this
Option will check the volume for errors, click check now,
Now put a check in the boxes (automatically fix file
System errors and scan for and attempt recovery of
Bad sectors, hit Start and a note will come up and
saying that it canít do a scan becausethere are system files
in use but can do a check disk on next boot up, tell it ok.
This will take about an hour or so!
Make sure you let it run till itís done!

then do a disk defragmenter
start, accessories, system tools, disk defragmenter.
hope that helps.
