    My computer keeps alerting me that the file C:/$Mft is corrupt or unreadable, and that I need to run the checkdisk utility. Also everytime I turn the computer on it automatically runs the chkdisk and everything comes up a sucessfully completed. I ran the utility myself once in windows, but it still keeps alerting me and running checkdisk automatically. Does anyone have any ideas?? :confused:

    another option: format your hard drive and start over- here's how:

    also try- go to Start - Run - type in chkdsk /f c:
