I'm having a pop up say that my C: drive is corrupted and that I need to run chkdsk to fix it. Every time I go there it will pop up and go away. It won't let me install or run anything, including Microsoft Works. I had to uninstall it and use my disk to reinstall but it still won't work. I tried system restore it just comes up and says it has errors & windows have detect file system corruption on OS. It also won't let me download anything, it says that says error creating log file: the file or directory is corrupted and unreadable.

Is there an easier way to fix this than reinstalling Vista? :huh:

Thanks.

Hi asmith0167, and welcome to BleepingComputer.

Did you run the chkdsk?

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

Running chkdsk in Vista Guide.. http://www.vistax64.com/tutorials/67612-ch...isk-chkdsk.html

Make sure to check both options, the process should take a few hours to run.

Upon completion attempt to install Microsoft Works again.
