Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life. You never know when one will leave you.

If this has been happening for only a coupe of weeks or so, try doing a System Restore.
Start> All Programs> Accessories> System Tools> System Restore.
When this opens make sure that "Restore my computer to an earlier time" is chosen, and click on Next>.
The dates appearing in bold are the dates that you can restore to, click on the date that was prior to your trouble. Click on Next> to start the System Restore. This may take a long time to complete, and when it is done it will restart your computer. When the computer restarts and you have logged on as the administrator a Restoration Complete page will appear, click on OK to complete the process.

Just for the record...chkdsk is a Windows tool for dealing with files and some file system and some hard drive problems. Although it is is a very useful tool and does many things, it's not really a hard drive diagnostic.
Hard drive diagnostics are utilities developed by the hard drive manufacturers...to test the functionality of their products. They may also include utilities to fix/overcome certain problems...but the main intent is to assess the functionality of the hard drive compared to how it is intended to function.
Often, users like me...will run chkdsk /r and run into problems that cannot be handled by it. At that time, I run a hard drive diagnostic...so that I can get an idea if it is the hard drive itself that is the problem.
