I tried looking under help as to what Chkdsk is and what I need to do, but I am lost. I don't get it, plus I am concerned that something bigger is wrong as this has never happened before. I didn't find any issues when I ran the previously mentioned programs, so I am more confused. I rebooted in safe mode and ran Smitrem.exe (from http://noahdfear.geekstogo.com/) as this seemed to help in the past when I had a problem....still no go.
I am going off of my previous experience and things I've gleaned from your website, and different posts, but haven't been able to find anything that seems to sound similar to my problem, and haven't been able to fix this myself. I don't want to try a system restore as in the past when I have done that it seemed to screw up my computer even worse. If anyone has any idea what is going on, or what I need to do could you please let me know? I don't have much $ to donate, but I could scrape something up, and you would be doing me a huge favor.
Just in case I did a HijackThis scan and this was the log:
