Hi, I'm having some troubles with my computer that prevent me from working (this is my music work station) so thanks in advance for your help.
First, here are my computer specs:
On monday morning I turned on the computer as usual but I saw a new green loading bar after the BIOS check. I thought I still wasn't awake but I then got an error message from Windows (Win7 64 Home ed) stating the computer couldn't boot properly because of errors and a startup repair needed to be executed. So be it, I waited for 3 minutes and once the diagnosis was complete, it said there were errors in the registry that got fixed in the process.
I remembered that I had a similar problem in 2011 and that was the cause of my system format/Windows reinstall and gear upgrade (went from a Q9650 to a 2600K, I also changed the motherboard, RAM, Heatsink and PSU).
After the startup repair, Windows boots as usual, except for the NOD32 virus database that was 2 days old, as were the Windows Defender virus signature. I guess the startup repair rolled some data back. I do the updates and everything seems fine.
Yesterday morning, nothing happened. I worked with Cubase as usual but got errors from Cubase video engine complaining about QT each time I exited Cubase. Strangely the videos were working fine in Cubase after I installed QT Lite on Sunday so I don't understand why I'm having these messages. I decided to uninstall QT Lite but Windows said something went wrong in the uninstall process.
This morning I had a new startup repair. After the system boot, I saw that my FileZilla shortcut on my desktop was corrupted (see picture). I tried to click on it but I got this error message: "These files can't be opened. Your Internet security settings prevented one or more files from being opened." Now I browse to the FileZilla install folder and explorer starts hanging, it doesn't respond for 15 seconds (see picture) and then I can access the folder. Everything seems fine except the filezilla exe which has no icon (see pic).
Now I start a chkdsk on my system (SSD) to see if there are some errors. The process is VERY slow. I then get "file record segment ##### is unreadable." errors... lots of them. The process is so slow I always terminated chkdsk before it finishes its check up.
Not sure what to do now... what would you suggest?
