    what's your advice?? Should i get a new hard drive, make a clone copy with Ghost and flush it on the new drive?

    cor I don't like this much... I tried Defragmenting and Chkdsk but both options seemed to stall on the offending sector and the hard disk is making a weird spinning grinding sound when I try getting into Outlook Express. :(

    The pc is running WIN2000 Pro OS, 512MB RAM, ATHLON 2400GHz processor. Used at work, so nothing fancy as graphics card and sound card (both onboard).

    Maybe I should have this thread over at Hardware? Not sure.
