Fix Disk With Chkdsk
7
    Add    Flag
solution icon

Run the Window disk check and repair program CHKDSK as follows:

  1. Open the Run dialog (Windows key + R) and type: chkdsk c: /f
    Replace "c" with the drive letter you want Windows to check and repair if it's another drive other than C.

  2. In many cases it will return with a question: Chkdsk cannot run because the volume is in use by another process. Would you like to schedule this volume to be checked the next time the system restarts? (Y/N)

    Enter Y.

  3. Save any open files and close all applications. Restart the system to have Windows complete the disk test and repair.

Repair Damaged or Missing OS Files

Use the Windows RE (Repair Environment) under Window 7/Vista to repair and replace missing or damaged files. For XP users, you can re-install XP without erasing applications or settings, or use the XP Recovery Console to fix some problems. Pick the OS solution below.

Using Windows RE for Windows 7/Vista/Server 2008

For detailed instructions with screen shots, go to Using System Restore 7/Vista/2008, or use the brief summary here:

You'll need the Windows installation DVD. Note that many OEM manufactures leave out the installation DVD, which has to be purchased separately, or they only include a limited restore DVD that just erases the system and starts over (often a poor choice). All retail copies of Windows include this bootable DVD.

Insert the Windows DVD and reboot the system. Assuming the BIOS defaults to booting from the DVD (usually the default) then select the language. Next click on Repair your computer. A list of Windows installations should appear. Select your installation (typically there will only be one).

A list of recovery options will appear including an automatic repair function, restore from a previous system restore point, restore the computer from a backup (assuming one is available), run the memory diagnostic tool, or go to a command prompt (for advanced users).

Using Windows Recovery for XP

For detailed instructions with screen shots, go to Using System Restore XP.

Perform Registry Cleaning

Fix any registry problems. Use a registry fixer tool to accomplish this. A good registry fixer will fix or remove bad entries and orphaned entries left over from a badly behaving uninstall.

One registry fixer tool that stands out in competitive reviews is part of Fix-It Utilities Professional and SystemSuite Professional.
