    On Sunday my laptop (running windows XP Home Edition) froze up and when I rebooted discovered EVERY file was having LOST CLUSTER problems. When I finally was able to get into windows most major functions such as IE 6.0 browser and Outlook Express would not work properly. I was able to run a registry fix program I had and it 'corrected' over 330 errors in the registry. However, it still has not corrected my problem.

    I use Earthlink and I contacted them this morning and they suggested I run SFC /SCANNOW and re-install IE. However, I get the following error:

    "A problem has been detected and windows has been such down to prevent damage to your computer

    KERNEL_DATA_INPAGE_ERROR

    ...
    ...

    Begin Dump of Physical Memory"


    Please can any one help me. I am not sure what happened but now most systems are not working. It keeps on rebooting into a dyagnostic mode where it checks lost clusters and If I manage to bypass this and get into windows desktop, it comes up with all sorts of DLL errors being corrupted and that I should run CHKDSK (which I did but then it hangs the machine and the starts the whole cycle again)....

    I am not too familiar with the REGISTRY and I need some help.

    Thanks.

    :confused:

    [Tuesday morning] I have additional information:

    I now get the following errors:

    Errors in Windows/Prefetch/RNDAL.EXE-15330267.pf

    and

    Windows Delayed Write Failed messages. A whole bunch
    dispex.dll.new
    bootok.exe.new
    dimap.dll.new
    crtdll.dll.new
    comsetup.dll.new
    capesnpn.dll.new
    cdm.dll.new
    charmap.exe.new

    etc...

    Also, when I try and select UPDATE WINDOWS from TOOLS in IE 6.0,
    it creates an ERROR REPORT for Microsoft and shuts down the browser
