I've had this problem for weeks now where every other time I turn on my computer, Chkdsk (NTFS system; C: is dirty) appeared on startup. I've looked through this forum already and followed mainly this post: http://www.geekstogo...t-t151990.html; however, after going through all the steps, running the full Chkdsk, my computer was clean for a few hours before getting dirty again.
Seeing as this only happened after my brother used the computer, I asked him to switch to using Firefox -- my default browser -- and continued the dirty query... it came back clean every time until he forgot and went back to using Internet Explorer. After this time (he only started it up and quit it) the volume came out dirty, so assuming it has something to do with a corrupted bit with IE, I first scanned it both for viruses or malware, uninstalled and then reinstalled the application. Unfortunately, this didn't help, since I just clicked on IE, did the query, and it's back to being dirty. Is there any way to get rid of this annoying problem (that is, without ditching IE altogether and forcing my brother onto Firefox??). Thank you!
