    There are messages popping "...exe" file corrupted, please run chkdsk ultiliy. I did 'start' 'run' 'cmd' then 'chkdsk /f/r' ....chkdsk can not lock current driver...use by another process...do you want to start chkdsk at startup 'y' for yes. At startup, ....chkdsk cancelled.

    I tried 'computer' 'c:' right clip 'property' 'tool' 'check now' and tick 'automatically fix file system error' and 'scan for and attempt error recovery for bad sector' then start' then there is a message 'disk check could not be performed...do you want to schedule this disk check to ru the next time you start your computer ' 'y' for yes. At startup, ...chkdsk cancelled.

    DO YOU KNOW THAT IT IS ANNOYING READING FROM ALL CAPS?

    Try running checkdisk from recovery console. Once finished scanning, run a defrag.

    I think "no using of all caps" should be added in the rules. :p

    Added no all capitals in the rules. See, when someone uses all caps, people are very reluctant to help. It felt like being shouted and ordered to help them.

    Hope it would stop people from writing all caps.

    Btw, the rule number 4 and 5 is on the same line. :p
