    Please forgive me but I have no idea how to run that device. I not very "tech smart".
    Anyway, I have attached the image of the result log.

    The problem is that whenever I try to update or download anything...I get a window saying I am not connected to the internet...But I am !
    The only way I can "sometimes" download something is to after clicking on run...I have to "save" to desktop and then run the program.
    I installed IE 8 that way, but then it said it could not show web pages because of "not connected to the internet".
    Sooo, I went back to IE 7 and then at least it let me connect.....strange eh???.

    in the run box type or copy and paste this in

    chkdsk /r

    then press enter

    reboot the computer and chkdsk will run

    what are you running
    video card brand and model
    cpu
    m/board
    ram
    power supply
    brand
    model
    wattage

    check the listings in the bios for 12v line voltages and temperatures and post them

    to get the power supply information take the side off the case and look at the label

    I ran the check disk like you said. It said 'The volume was clean'.
    As far as system info....I posted the image of that read out earlier.

    Something I didn't mention was antivirus/malware, what are you using for protection?

    Kingsoft AntiVirus....but this problem was a problem before I added the Kingsoft.
    Before KingSoft it had Microsoft Essentials.

    Thank you for your attempted help my friend.....but obtaining all the requested info is just too much for someone that only knows how to push the power button on.
    Thank you again.

    Could you download and run a full system scan with malwarebytes, make sure when you install that you untick the box that says free pro trial and let it update before you scan. I've never even heard of kingsoft antivirus I would suggest getting rid of it and installing Bitdefender Free, they have a new version out and they are really good.

    So to recap uninstall kingsoft, then install malwarebytes and run a full scan and it will create a log.txt, you can simply copy and paste the text here. When you are done with the malwarebytes install the BitDefender and run scan with that too. If this doesn't solve your issue then we can move on, I will give you complete and easy instructions you can follow:D

    Thank you very much for your patience, CLCS and dai.
    I did as you said and uninstalled KingSoft....I downloaded MalwareBytes and ran a scan.
    Note: As usual on any attempt to download files...I can never get updates imcluding the MalwareBytes download....this is what the pop up window said:...
    PROGRAM_ERROR_UPDATING [0,0,connection refused]

    But here is the log and I will now attempt to download Bit Defender AntiVirus and run a full scan then paste the log here shortly.

    I really don't understand why people are having you run all these scans when there is no evidence at all of an infection. In any case, they are not qualified to help you with any infections.

    But could you please elaborate a bit on your problem? You say that files are "corrupted". What makes you think this? What error messages have you gotten (verbatim, please)?
