When I switched my laptop on this morning the above messgae hit me! I have found and run chkdisk, but it gives me the option of

Automatically fix file system errors
or
Scan for and attempt recovery of bad sectors

Which should I tick pls?

I checked the disk previously to running chkdisk and it showed that the Installation support file is damaged

new message while typing this ybrowser.exe corrupt!

I would be grateful for any help as any time I have been in this situation of entering the unknown my laptop has played up for weeks while you guys have helped!
Thanks in advance for any help

Sounds like you might have a HD that is starting to go.
Hope you have it backed-up.
Good Luck
