Hi - Disk checkup error

Hi im new to this Forum, just registered a few hours ago, to get some help from this place
I have posted a BSOD report on my PC..right now i haven't had one since but we'll see how it goes. And also i have an another error. When i turn on my pc, there is a Disk checkup talking about scanning my drive or something for consistency right, but the bad thing is that it has a error and couldn't be scanned due to some recent installed software. It started happened around last week and i have installed a few programs, to resolve my BSOD. Now what can i do to resolve this mess

Do you have a system restore point going back to before the problems began?

A disk check like that often fails because it is detected too late in the windows startup. The way around it I have used is to request a scheduled disk check by going into the drives properties. On the tools tab press Check Now. It will start to do the check, realize that it can't and offer to schedule one on the next boot. Press yes and then ok out of the properties and then restart your PC. It should perform the check disk during the restart. If all goes well this will also reset the flag which caused the original request.
