The first time it happened, it was after the computer rebooted itself (after trying to play Medal of Honor: Airborne Demo, it quit while loading a mission). It found a bunch of defects and cleaned it out for me. MS Word and Works needed the CD to complete installation.

Second time was after I rebooted doing some regular maintenance on my computer. Didn't find as much, but still concerned me a bit.

If I had to guess, it's because of the NVIDIA video driver I had recently installed to be able to run the BioShock demo. The driver is in BETA form, so that makes me wonder if it's the driver causing the problems. Any theories/suggestions?

Could be that the driver is interfering with the disk being flushed properly during shutdown.

Try looking through the event log and see if there's any unusual entries there.
Alternatively, rollback the display driver and see if the problem still occurs.
