You will need a Windows Installation Disk or System Repair Disk to do this.

Boot to the Disk, choose your language > Next > and then choose "Repair My Computer" > select the "Use REcovery Tools..." option > Next > Click on the "Command Prompt" option.

Then type: " chkdsk C: /r " and the ENTER

Let that run and see if it repairs the errors.
