no takers?

Run scandisk, and check your memory/cpu.

If that fails, back up any important information and look to a new hard drive.

sorry xp pro isnt that what diskeeper does?

Nope. Diskeeper defragments the drive, you need to run chkdsk to check the drive for errors.

how please? cos the last time i ran that it found/replaced 200 files and three days later i had a massive outage resulting in processor replacement and memory.

Probably the best way is Start, Run, type in


and click OK.

Then at the command prompt type in


and press enter.
