Well, It may be a harddrive failing.

Please backup all your files to a CD or flash drive or what you may have that can store space. You never know when the drive will stop working and you totally lost all your files.

If you were to lose your email adress book.. I would copy all the email adresses and put them into a Word file and back it up somewhere..
