Pretty much its the same thing this guy

http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/519466/malware-most-programs-give-parameter-is-incorrect/

 here is having, I have been seeing ALOT of this over the past week on machines where I work and I have been left scratching my head, sometimes its even on a SSD machine so where would chkdsk even come into play on that drive?

I have seen it on windows 8 as well twice so far.

 

Any ideas?

Forgot to mention that on these machines USUALLY programs like QuickBooks and Combofix(on the 7 machines) will not open just tells you that you don't have permission

FWIW:  I believe you are somewhat confused...chkdsk /r is a valid command for SSDs and all hard drives/SSDs...it's defrag which is not recommended on SSDs.

I suggest that you try running the chkdsk /r command on your Windows partition.

I have been running it anyway but usually the SSD software will let you know if a clusterfudge has popped up, but beside that fact which you are right defrag is not needed the chkdsk still has no effect on the issue, some I can run sfc fine and others It will not let me its just been a strange week
