wjason777, is this the same laptop that gringo_pr is helping you clean out the infections? If it is you shouldn't make any changes to your computer unless your are instructed to do so by gringo_pr.
zzz7, chkdsk /r will do the same thing that chkdsk /f will do, but it will also attempt to retrieve data from bad sectors.
If this computer is running Vista or Windows 7 you should run this scan as the administrator.
Click on the Start orb
, type in cmd
in the Search programs and files
box. When cmd
is seen in Programs
right click on it, then click on Run as administrator
You will see a screen similar to the one below.
Type in chkdsk c:/r then press Enter.
You will receieve the message "CHKDSK cannot be run because it is in use by another process. Would you like to schedule this volume to be checked the next time the system restarts? <Y/N>".
Type in Y and press Enter.
Restart your computer to start the scan.
