I did the chkdsk /r and a reboot by choice. Yes you might as well go off and get a cup of coffee while waiting for chkdsk.
It went through Five Distinct Stages
1. File Verification
2. Index Verification
3. Security Descriptor Verification
4. File Data Verification
5. Free Space Verification.
No messages of files being fixed showed up. All ran normally to completion.
Then Zone Alarm announced that it had an update download available and I downloaded it. I was offered two choices....Update or Clean Install. I chose Clean Install in lew of the previous corrupt True Vector Response.
I let Zone Alarm do a virus scan. And somewhere in the frey the computer decided to reboot. No explanation yet.
I am going to burn a data CD on my desktop next with lots of pictures and then use it to run chkdsk on the CDROM drive. That is next.
I am still monitoring the Event Viewer. Nothing in the Applications Section.
An event 8032 is coming up...Browser. Text:
"The Browser Service has failed to retrieve the backup list too many times on transport \Device\Net_BT_TCPIP_(2f9edf28-5877-41CA-C510DFEF62 BF). The Backup Browser is stopping.
Help and Support Comments:
This computer is currently a backup browser. Backup browsers periodically retrieve the browse list from the master browser. This computer could not retrieve the browser list from master browser five times consecutively.
The Browser 8021 Event is usually when this event is logged. Possible causes include:
b.Name resolution problems
c.An overloaded master browser or
d.A master browser that is unavailable because, for example, it is shut down or lost network connectivity.
This event usually indicates poor network health. If the backup browser cannot retrieve the browser list from the master browser, its list becomes stale and therefore unreliable, so it stops becoming a backup browser. For more information about browsing, see Appendix I: Windows 2000 Service Browser Service on the Microsoft Technet websitehttp://www.microsoft...fi-brs_oynw.asp
Event 8021 fired just ahead of this. BACKGROUND INFO:
This is a home SBC DSL network. The primary computer in the DSL Configuration is a Fry's Desktop # GHZ computer on which I am writing this. The Fry's Computer is working fine. It is tied to the laptop that is the subject of this discussion through an SBC 2 Wire Gateway. The desktop is connected USB and the laptop is connected through a TMObile Hotspot Wireless card. The console indicates connection at 11MBPS.
The 2 Wire Gateway has 3 lights : 1. Power 2. Broadband Link 3: Local Network .... the lights have been green through the entire process. The laptop is no more than 5 feet from the 2 wire gateway.
NOW ON TO BURNING THE DATA CD AND CHKDSK ON THE DRIVE.
