    My PC when first turned on does the POST then loads windows then flickers back and forth a few times to the verifying pool data screen and finally it just goes into Windows. Can someone please help.

    With out knowing the type of machine you have, or OS. it's hard to tell. However there are a few things you can check

    Have you installed any software lately, particularily something like an anti virus, or partitioning?

    Have you updated your antivirus and done a full check? Does it check the boot sector?

    Your bios may need updating?
