when i run disk cleanup to delete files it shows the file(s) as deleted , but when i shutdown the computer and/or reboot, the file(s) are still on the computer.
i've tried to download and install virus cleaners and disk defrag tools, but when i reboot anything i add will be gone and anything i delete will remain.
i have tried fdisk, killdisk, dban.. when i've tried to reformat the hd it will tell me to run scandisk.. which i have done a thousand times, i've ran the WD hd disk tools to check the hd and it reports no bad sectors.
What ever it is, it will not let me do anything.
and i just noticed when i went to :
Start>Settings>Control Panel>Add/Remove> clicked windows setup tab, and it's blank.
"Oh yeah" and Scandisk runs evertime i restart the computer.
