This morning when I started up by computer, a checkdsk message come on with something along those lines. CHKDSK NTSF started running automatically on Blue Screen every time I turn on the computer. "One of your disks needs to be checked for consistency" and proceeds to check C:\ for 'Files' 'Indexes' and 'Security Descriptors.' (command line 'parameters' are needed for all these) Then Windows booted up normally. I ran Trend Micro and it found nothing but I noticed a large amount of spyware (545) being stopped. I went to system restore and there was a point called "installed connect service" for yesterday evening. I restored to this point. Not sure what to do. I'm not sure if I have a virsus since Trend didn't pick it up. Any advice?

Hello Riahs7...

Try running the full disk check...

Click the Start orb, then "All Programs". Click "Accessories", then right click on "Command Prompt" and choose "Run as Administrator".

In the command session window that opens, type chkdsk /r c: and press Enter.

When told that the drive is busy and asked if you want to run this at the next boot, type Y and press Enter.

Type exit and press Enter to quit the command session.


This will be a long check and may appear to hang or even to back up and start over a few times. This is normal...let the full check complete. The machine should boot...or attempt to boot...normally once the disk check is finished.

Let us know how this goes...
