I will post my problem below and am obviously hoping that one of you guys will be able to help me out:
I have WinXP SP3 on a fairly new (about 1 month) custom build PC and last night when I tried to run ScanDisk (for the first time on this machine actually) it wouldn't work. Now usually when one selcets Scandisk it prompts you that it will do it on restart, not the case here, it simply says Windows could not complete the check and my only option is to press OK.
I have tried various things like from the cmd i typed chkdsk c:/f and it said it would run it on startup, but never does.
I then used the Windows Recovery console (booting from xp disk) and managed to get the Scandisk to work with the following command: chkdsk c:/r
It finished the scandisk and did repair some stuff, but in Windows it now still wont let me run a Scandisk, why??
I tried other things I got from some other places like this SFC /scannow which also didn't help and now I am getting this Windows File Protection (wanting to run that scan or whatever) Pop-up everytime I log on, what to do???
I really do not wanna format as I have a 500gig hdd and its almost full and I would loose all my stuff (and no i cant back it up anywhere). The only thing i haven't tried (that I know of) is running Windows Repair, you guys think this would help, please let me know and thanks in advance!!!
