My PC is telling me to run Chkdsk\f as there is a corrupted file but I can't find this Chkdsk thing. Any ideas? The message comes on every time and seems to be slowing things down. I've run cleanup and tried to run the disk defragmenter but that won't run because of the corrupted file. It seems to be something to do with Symantec Norton Internet Security - so would be sensible to uninstall Norton and then use my new disk to reinstall? ( This is what's coming up as the problem, C:\PROGRAM/commonfiles\symantec shared\VIRUSD, I may not have it exactly right as it's slightly different every time.) Can you help?
If you have winxp click on start - run then type in cmd, from there type 'chkdsk /f' without the apostrophes, it will inform you that you can run this command next time windows is restarted click 'Y' for yes.
