Sorry I have not been able to get back to you. Windows does see more than 137gigs. In the last few days I've tried a few things and I am sorry to say I am running into more problems now.
I uninstalled both games. That very same day my computer started restarting on it's own. I kept getting the same error about apati.sys being the cause. So when I finally did get the computer up I checked the log to see what was happening to my computer and I noticed my firewall being disabled.
I ran maleware bytes. 0 viruses and errors. I ran hijackthis, no bad entries. I ran avast o viruses. So confused and really frustrated I ran another hard drive check using a boot disk. As soon as it got to random surface scan I got
Error: LBA 0
AJ24: Bad sector
and would not move forward. I tried running chk dsk /r to fix the error and the computer restarted and I got the error message service could not be completed. So I said let me try restoring my computer maybe that will help. I had serval restore points and started doing a restore and it crashed. Message service could not be completed.
Tonight I am trying to run chk dsk again hoping it might fix the problem but at this point I am not sure what to do.
We have a tech support at work that constantly upgrades machines and fixes machines and I told him how originally I did not get an error when I ran the hard drive test but I still got disk boot failures. He said it is possible the hard drive could be good...but the wiring on the back bad.
Anyway I wanted to see if you had any other suggestions? I am trying to run chk dsk again but last time it crashed. I tried both chk dsk /r and chk dsk /f and neither worked without crashing. They both got to stage 4 of 5 and crashed.
Thank you again for your help!
