    Open a command prompt and run chkdsk /r

    You'll be asked if you want to run it on the next boot. Answer y and then exit the command prompt and reboot.

    After chkdsk has run and the system has booted, open a command prompt again and run sfc /scannow

    Have your installation CD handy in case you're asked to insert it.

    After you click on "Command Prompt" a black screen opens with white letters on it and a blinking line. Type chkdsk /r and hit Enter.

    You'll be asked if you want to run it on the next boot. Answer y and then hit Enter. Type exit and hit Enter.

    Reboot the computer. After chkdsk completes, open another command prompt and type sfc /scannow and hit Enter.

    Have your installation CD handy in case you're asked to insert it into the CD drive.

    Whenever I see this message it turns out to be malware.

    Do you think you could be infected?
