Answers :

Use your installation CD for Windows that came with your computer, and boot to the CD. (Usually, pressing the F12 key will offer your boot options such as "Boot to CD.")

Once booted on to the CD, it will offer you several options - Do not reinstall Windows - you want to choose the Repair Option.

When the repair stuff has loaded (You may have to select which volume you wish to work on, if so just pick the number that is next to your C drive.) and you are at the prompt that looks like "C:>" you will want to type in the following, without the quotation marks.

"chkdsk c: /r"

It will take a while for it to work all its magic, but that should fix your problem!

When it is finished, you can simply push the power button on your computer to turn it off.
When you next turn it on, it should be happier
