First of all, what's your operating system? What's the corrupt file?

Also, you need to put a space between chckdsk and /F, so it reads "chkdsk /F" (without the quotes).

Ahh...a RealPlayer file. Try uninstalling RealPlayer and then re-installing it. Be sure to restart your computer after uninstalling it and before reinstalling it. (As a general practice, I usually restart my computer after uninstalling programs *and* after installing them, even if it doesn't tell me I need to. The only time I wouldn't restart is if the program specifically stated NOT to - a situation I've never run into. :))

I would try the above option before running scandisk - might save you a bunch of time.

Good luck.
