    Hi I am new to this forum, so please bear with me. Could anyone help with an annoying problem I am receiving countless error messages -yellow triangle- informing me that almost every application I go into is corrupted. It then informs me to utilise the chkdsk facility via the run command in the start menu. I have done this and it gives me the usual message of system is in use run chkdsk on reboot etc. I always type Y , but on the reebot I get a blue screen informing me that my op system is NTFS and this cannot be locked or checked, leaving me back to square one. How do I use my chkdsk to address these corrupted files. Any advice welcome. Many thanks Tom

    Howdy,

    Try this click Start>>Run type cmd click Ok.

    In the Command Prompt type chkdsk /r click Enter

    You will be asked if you want a check disk to run on next startup click Y and then press Enter

    Restart your PC
