I'm trying to system restore before i installed a program. my problem shall be explained in pictures.


1st i try to system restore
Posted Image

2nd is the error message so i click "check the disk for errors"
Posted Image

3rd i click start with the box "automatically fix file system errors" checked
Posted Image

4th i get another error message so i click "schedule disk check" button
Posted Image

5th upon restarting my computer there is no disk check so i go through steps one and two but this time i check the box that says "scan for and attempt recovery of bad sectors" unfortunately the progress bar doesn't get far before the "checking disk local disk (c:)" window disappears before it finishes scanning.

how do i restore to a previous state to get rid of errors when i have an error restoring?


i am aware of a folder on my computer that contains corrupt files
Posted Image
some time ago i installed a windows update and every time i opened any program i got this error message.
i stopped getting the error message and when i check for that location on my computer its not there anymore.
possibly this was a microsoft error which they knew about and fixed with a later update?
my thoughts are that these could be the corrupt files on my C disk but i can't find them anymore so maybe not.

any suggestions as to how i can check my C disk and clean up the errors so i can complete my system restore successfully?

I'm not 100% sure about your issues, but you can force chkdsk /r to run this way:

Go to Start and type "cmd.exe" (without the quotes). At the top of the search box will be an entry for cmd.exe
Right click on it and select "Run as administrator"
When the command prompt opens up, type "chkdsk /r" (without the quotes) and press Enter
It'll ask if you want to run it on the next reboot. Answer Y (for yes) and press Enter - then reboot.
Chkdsk should run (in a light blue screen) as the computer is booting. It may take a while, so let it run until it's done (it'll boot to Windows afterwards).

i followed your instructions and once again upon restart the check disk did not run?

do you think maybe the vista o.s. disc can repair any corrupt files? i can't remember but i thought it had a repair option

If you boot from the Vista disk it'll give you the option to run Startup Repair - or you can run chkdsk /r from the Command Prompt there.
Here's a link to the tutorial: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/tutorials/repair-windows-with-windows-startup-repair/
