I have a corrupt file on my c: i believe it says c:/$MFT is corrupt. I'm not sure I'm not using my pc right now. I have read that I need to run chkdsk/f when I try to do this it says that the volume is in use. I went into system restore and ran chkdsk c: /r but it didn't fix anything. Im sure that I need to run chkdsk/f I have NTFS if that has anything to do with it. Any idea how I can chkdsk/f thanks.

CHKDSK /F is an outdated parameter, not helped by the fact that it's actually listed in XP blue screens.

What you do is right-click your drive in My Computer, go to Properties -> Tools -> Check Now. Tick both boxes, reboot the computer.
