Has this happened only once or has it repeated?


Step 1.

Please tap the up or down cursor keys to stop the screen where the selection of the reocovery console is located.
Select Windows Recovery Console then hit ENTER
Under which Windows installation? Type 1 then hit ENTER
At the prompt type chkdsk /r then hit ENTER Note: there is a single space between chkdsk and /r.


Once it completes reboot the computer into normal mode and let me know the status.

The best items are:


These addons:

Adblock from here


Java Noscript here


Web of Trust from here

These are the ones I have on my wife's computer and you can do the others but they are of lesser value.
