Windows - Corrupt File

  Sirpad 01:21 04 Apr 2006

I linked to a page today that just hung there for a long time. I tried ending the task but could I rebooted.

Now I get this message popping up bottom right.

'Windows - Corrupt File'
The file or directory C:\Documents and Settings\Myname\Local Settings\Temporary Internet Files\Content.IE5\4TZVOTUZ is corrupt or unreadable.
Please run the CHKDSK utility.

I only remember CHKDSK from DOS. I ran a full virus scan with NOD32 and I ran CCleaner and I have Spywareblaster and CWShredder.

What should I do? Should I worry (it appears to be a temporary file)? Is this file significant?

Start>Run>cmd. When the window opens increase its size then type chkdsk /?. This will give you all the variants of chkdsk

Click Start>Right Click My Computer then Properties then Right Click the drive you want to run CHKDSK on and select properties. Click the tab marked tools, then click on Error Checking. Check the box marked Automatically Fix all errors then click OK. A dialogue box will appear and you will have to do a restart for the CHKDSK to start. Hope this helps.

Thanks guys....wasn't sure if CHKDSK was still in existance. Just ran it and it seemed to work like it used to work in DOS. It did find and delete a corrupt file. Thanks for staying up late and helping me out..........
