    Dell Studio 1737. Using Vista. Was running well. Now on bootup get screen ...'.Launch startup repair or start normally'
    on clicking repair it tries, then gets screen...' checking system for problems' which I ran and got 'Startup repair cannot repair automatically'. Gives choice to send info. or don't send info.
    The problem details are as follows:
    Problem signature 1 AutoFailover
    2 6.0.6001.18000.6.0.6001.18000
    3 6
    4 1376276
    5 Bad driver
    6 Bad Driver
    7 0
    8 3
    9 WrpRepair
    10 10
    I am looking for a solution (if there is any) to not have to do a repair that will destroy my files.

    Within last 3 weeks installed McAffee (had problems installing) and connected a 'Nook'















    In the last 3 weeks had installed McAfee (had problems installing) and connected a 'Nook'

    Unfortunately, no system restore points were set. A list of recovery tools came up....I'll try the command prompt suggestion.

    ran CKHDSK/F and got this.....The type of the file system is NTFS. Cannot lock current drive.
    Chkdsk cannot run because the volume is in use by another process. Would you like to shedule this volume to be checked the nest time the system restarts?
