click start and agree the message to run on restart.
Yes indeed as per my post quote above and the reply from Spyderturbo007
When you have done that go Start, Control Panel, administrative functions,event viewer, click application in left hand pane and on the main window find the first winlogon entry going from the top. Double click that, this will be your chkdsk results. Was anything found apart from a few minor file inconsistencies. If so post the results.
If all is OK there, apart from what I have inidcated go start, programs.
If you are using IE go accessories, system tools and find the IE with no add-ons. Start IE from there and see if the problem is solved.
If you are using Firefox find that in the programs and hold the mouse on the Mozilla Firefox, there will be an entry Mozilla Firefox Safe mode. Start Firefox therre and check now on that.

When you agreed to run the diskcheck on retstart and restarted the system, by the usual method of start, Turn off and then restart, you should have then received a screen which said diskcheck is due to start in
so many seconds. etc. You do not click anything you just let it run.
Go back and follow my instructions please and check again.
There are a number of ways of running chkdsk in Windows.
1 Open My Computer, right click the HDD carrying Windows, click Properties
Click the Tools tab
Click Error Checking
Click Check Now
Click to check the box - automatically fix file system errors
Click Start Agree to run on restart and do so.
DO NOT INTERRUPT the chkdsk, doing so may well corrupt the file system, or at worse render the HDD useless.
If you cannot read the results, or have left the computer unattended to complete the check, then go Control Panel, Administrative functions, Event Viewer, Application and scroll down to the Winlogon entry. Double click that entry and you will see the results.

A command prompt window will open.
at the prompt type "chkdsk c: /f" again without quotes.
agree the message to run on restart.
Try it that way as here.
3. Chkdsk can also be run from the Start, Run and type cmd. And is then run from the cmd prompt using basically
Chkdsk c: /f checks the file system
Chkdsk c: /r as above, but also scans for and attempts recovery of bad sectors.
Again if the disk being checked is in use you will receive a message to run on restart. Type Y and press enter then type exit and press enter.
Then restart the computer.
USE just the /f please and note pace between chkdsk and c: and c: and f.
