Having another crappy week and can't seem to focus:
Dell laptop came in with malware. Did standard cleanup with AdwCleaner, Mbam, Rogue Killer. After cleanup everything looked good.
Laptop arrived already on, so on reboot I was prompted for a disk cleanup. Allowed it to run. After an hour it was stuck at stage 3. I rebooted and again was prompted. Skipped it. The laptop will go to desktop and everything checks out except it always ask for disk checking when booting. Disk check continued to fail- it would freeze up at stage 3. I booted off CD and did a chkdsk.....12 times and the scan FAILED everytime. Would get between 3-7% on stage 2. Lots of 'deleting corrupted' messages. So I decided to clone to a new drive.
Clone went through with no errors. Mounted back into the laptop. Disk check prompt came up and I allowed it to run. Now it's stuck at 60% in stage 2.
I need this disk prompt gone. What am I missing?
