I feel on the Bozo side of silly doing this so here goes. I am a guy who uses his computer almost everyday. Increasingly it is less and less fun to use a computer. My biggest problem is using Microsoft's products and PC instead of Linux and Apple computer products. The reason for that is simple; I play games. I signed up here with you folks because I got this here problem that calls itself "userinit" it is going one about how I have corrupt files and that I need to run Chk Dsk.
(Does windows XP even run CHKDSK? It was not listed in any of the System programs listed in Windows, so I was very suspicious. It seemed to only be a valid Windows error message. My guess is that I run CHKDSK and it tells me I gotta download this or that program to fix it and that program turns out to be worse than the problem I have. And of course they are going to want my credit card number right? Wrong! not falling for the banana in the tail pipe trick. So there you have it other than that all I can say is that both my parents were better people than me.

Hello and :welcome: to Bleeping Computer.

With regards to CHKDSK it can be done through XP, have a read of this: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/315265

Be sure to check out the New User Orientation and the excellent Tutorials.
The power of accurate observation is commonly called cynicism by those who haven't got it.
