Recently my computer has begun doing a number of strange things. First at startup, I receive a message that says "Checking file system on C: the type of the file is RAW Autochk is not available for RAW drives windows has finished checking the disk". I have tried using system restore in both regular mode and safe mode, but nothing happens. I have also noticed that my disk defragmenter does not work. Also, my internet explorer is constantly redirecting my searches when i click a link, and sometimes shuts down the internet completely. My has also begun freezing, (and had never done so before). I don't know if these things are connected, and i would appreciate any help i can get to fix my computer.

Right click on the C drive in Explorer and go Properties > Tools > Check Now (under Error Checking). Check both boxes then click "Start Now". A message will pop up saying that Error Checking will run after you restart the computer. Restart the computer and Error Checking will run automatically after the restart. After itís finished it will restart into Windows automatically.

Let us know how it goes.
The power of accurate observation is commonly called cynicism by those who haven't got it.

I'd suggest backing up anything that you want to save (in case this is a symptom of the drive starting to fail).

I'd also suggest running a diagnostic utility on your hard drive. These are usually available for free from the manufacturer of your hard drive. Here's a link to a list of the more common one's: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/28744/hard-drive-installation-and-diagnostic-tools/
