Well, went to system diagnostic tools and ran a check on the hard drive at start-up.
I am running Vista Ultima pk2.
The tool ran through a check of errors and found "orphan file # 13028".
The unit has a "fix error" program that works in auto.
The screen, that was in DOS ran an unreadable scroll.
The computer did not need a "hard re-boot" and seems to be functioning correct.
Had to find what an orphan file was.
The defination says that this type of file can be deleted from the drive.
How, or is it not neccessary?
