Every single time i boot up my PC, even before i get to windows i recieve an error messege saying that "windows found an error in your system files and restored a recent backup of the files to fix the problem, press enter to restart your computer". This is now becoming irritating, i just wonder if i've tweaked something somewhere, can someone offer any assistance?

Well I won't even bother trying to find your link - but if it is possible please post it.

Start, Run and type

SFC /SCANNOW

and hit the Enter key.

RESOLUTION
To resolve this issue, run the Registry Checker tool using the /fix and /opt command-line switches. To do so, follow these steps:


Restart your computer, press and hold down the CTRL key until the Windows 98 Startup menu appears, and then choose Command prompt only.
At the command prompt, type scanreg /fix, and then press ENTER.

NOTE: The /fix command-line switch causes the Registry Checker tool to repair any damaged portions of the registry.
After the Registry Checker tool finishes repairing the registry, press ENTER.
At the command prompt, type scanreg /opt, and then press ENTER.

NOTE: The /opt command-line switch causes the Registry Checker tool to optimize the registry by removing unused space.
Restart your computer.
