I have moved this to the XP forum on the assumption that is what you are running.

Is XP current with critical updates?

Have you run chkdsk on your drive?

XP Chkdsk, Using the Graphical Version (My Computer) - http://www.updatexp.com/windows-xp-chkdsk.html

Have you defragged the system?

Using Windows Defrag - http://www.geekgirls.com/windows_defrag.htm

Have you tried finding clues to what is wrong with your system...by using Event Viewer?

What is the Event Viewer, and Should I Care - Ask Leo! - http://ask-leo.com/what_is_the_event_viewe...uld_i_care.html

These would, IMO, be necessary first steps in dealing with your situation.

McAfee what? They have several products. Which one is installed and is it current with updates?

The errors that you encounter seem to be quite common. IMO, they are usually caused by some program that is poorly written or needs to have an update installed...but that's just my opinion, backed up by nothing :thumbsup:.

Here's someone else's view of these errors: http://ask-leo.com/how_do_i_fix_the_instru...ot_be_read.html
