So NO? It was a pop up window that opened when I clicked on "error checking" (check disk) I shouldnt check .. automatically fix file system errors and scan for and attempt recovery of bad sectors when I runt he disk check??


Macboatmaster .... I have 5 computers in my home (barely in working condition) but the one we worked on is my "main" work computer ... As I call her "my baby" lol. I have using my sons computer (which is slow and I hate it lol) The others I dont bother turning on because I need to fix them as well for my kids especially for school. :( Ill get to them soon I hope. lol

As the last from my colleague and as I said on post 55

What I would so now is to run a chkdsk /r on the new drive, in case the errors on the old drive caused by the bad sectors have been copied in the clone to the new drive



Click to check BOTH options the first one is already checked.

OR

cmd prompt

type

chkdsk C: /r

key enter

presuming that C is still the drive letter

If the boxes are NOT checked it is a chkdsk in read only mode and does nothing to correct errors copied in the clone.



Macboatmaster you are the reason I learned and gained the confidence to do it


That is nice of you to say so. It is people like you that makes working on Geeks to Go so rewarding.

Your appreciation and above all your determination to fix it are first class, as we have both said.

when it completes go Control Panel Admin tools, event viewer.

On left pane click application

on main window click the header of the column Source once

Now scroll to the winlogon entries

double click the latest winlogon to open it and check that it is the chkdsk results.

If so click ONCE on the double page symbol to the right of the main window and near the broad UP and Down arrows

Now on your reply right click and paste and the chkdsk results will apear

That is OK

All is in order. There will always be minor inconsistencies

0 KB in bad sectors.

Yes after I posted these results I looked at my old results from the failing drive and noticed that. I learned something new again. Lol.

Is there anything else I need to do?

Also is there a way you guys can see what programs are good or bad for my pc? For example I have spybot, ccleaner, malewarebyte. Etc. etc.

send me this please

http://www.piriform....speccy/download


the free edition and here is how

http://www.piriform....file-to-the-web

to send me the URL

I will look at it for you.

What I can tell you immediately is DO NOT use CCleaner, despite what you may have been told or read, it is a very powerful program, the registry cleaning aspect should NEVER be used except under expert gudance and even the cleaning program has many aspects that UNLESS you know what you are doing can result in problems.

For instance it automatically deletes important files relating to Micorosoft Security Essentials and also it similarly effects Avast. - just as two examples



The below is taken from the CCleaner fourm

I did some testing and CCleaner also removes all stored data from an avast! full scan. The first time I ran CCleaner on avast!, it cleaned 18MG's of something, and each time after that, it only cleaned a few KB. Today, I used CCleaner to clean everything, including avast!, then I did an avast! manual full scan, and it took 8min longer then normal (29 vs 21). Then after avast! finished I analyzed with CCleaner, and what do you know, there was 18MG's again waiting to be cleaned...............I have unchecked the avast! box, and will not clean it again. It defeats the whole purpose of avast! storing files in the persistent cache to speed up its performance.

Also, yesterday, I started having a yellow ! in my wireless connection task bar notifications icon. It would only last 3-5 seconds on boot, but it was a problem that I have never had. I thought it was an avast! signature update issue causing it, but as soon as I repopulated the persistent cache (that CCleaner emptied) by doing a full scan, the problem immediately disappeared
