O.k I go to defrag and BOOM error

defragmentation of hp pavilion C has been aborted due to inconsistencies that were dectected in the file system. please run CHKDSK or SCANDISK on hp pavilion C to repain these inconsistencies, then run Disk defrager again.


so I go and type CHKDSK into run and It opens a window and completes what it was doing. I go back and the same error comes up. So I go to run again and type in SCANDISK and it was invalid. After, i try to open a CMD window and this error appears

C:/windows/system32/cmd.com
C:/windows/system32/autoexec.nt. The system file is not suitable for running MS-DOS and microsoft windows applications. Choose to bla or bla this application.

Any help please :thumbsup:

Reboot your system and press F8 to bring up the boot menu. Choose the Safe Mode with Command Prompt, if a second menu appears choose the operating system and press Return to boot to Windows XP. Then use the CHKDSK command...

C:\>chkdsk /? shows you available options so you know what the next step does -

C:\>chkdsk /f /r

...will attempt to fix the C: drive/volume, do a surface scan, and attempt to recover data. You may be prompted to Restart to kill any processes before it will run. The scan may take quite some time.

When it is finished boot into Safe Mode and do your defrag there.

The easiest is simply inserting the Windows XP CD into the CD drive and clicking start --> Run and entering:

expand X:\i386\autoexec.nt_ c:\windows\system32\autoexec.nt

Replace X:\ with your CD ROM drive letter.

Try it again with this command:

C:\>chkdsk C: /F /R

It may warn you that you need to schedule the checkdisk for the next restart - choose Yes then exit and reboot and the checkdisk should run as the system starts.

If an error still occurs write down the exact error message.

cmd.com is not a valid file and could have been the result of malware

To fix the autoexec.nt problem

Scroll down to get XP Fix

To fix cmd.com and other possible wrong files

Download pocket killbox from http://www.thespykiller.co.uk/files/killbox.exe & put it on the desktop where you can find it easily

now Start killbox paste the first file listed below into the full pathname and file to delete box

The file name will appear in the window and if the file exists it will appear in blue under that window then select standard file kill, press the red X button, say yes to the prompt and once the file deleted message comes up then repeat for each file in turn

C:\WINDOWS\system32\CMD.COM
C:\WINDOWS\system32\netstat.com
