Windows seems to want to install something every 5 mins, and constantly tries to install and I'm getting this message when I boot my laptop:

C:/Program Files/Common Files is corrput run chkdsk to fix the problem. I run chkdsk and its does nothing, says it can not carry on in read only mode (!) I'm lost on that one. I cant download the ms cleanup program as the Administrator has all the permissions !! I thought I was the Adminsitrator (!)

Outlook wont open as the error message says OUTLOOK.EXE is corrupt and OSA.EXE is corrupt. I cant open Word, Excel or any office program.

I've googled this loads but cant seem to pinpoint it. Can anyone help ?
