What are the errors? Does it crash?

Run a virus check (Here is Microsoft's virus scanner).

If the Windows is on C: and running, windows will not allow you to run CHKDSK on C:. It will give a message saying that it can reschedule a disk check before the next reboot.

All you have to do after giving the CHKDSK command for C: is to accept the reschedule message and reboot. The system while rebooting runs the CHKDSK and will fix any errors it finds and then reboots the system to the desktop.

If the disc check error 766f6c756d652e63 3f1 comes see this page for remedy.

You can also do a SFC/ SCANNOW at elevated command prompt (right click on command prompt at Start - All Programs - Accessories and Run as administrator).

This is the results of that command prompt, any ideas?

Looks like there is an error in the syntax.

Correct command would be SFC /SCANNOW (space before /) Sorry!
