I actually have something similar to this where you see this flash of something pop up and go away. It happens quite frequently, However, I do not have any of the other issues they mentioned. I've checked everything from tasks , to running processes, and event logs etc. I've ran my Malware and Roguekiller just to be sure it wasnt something hidden. It's more of an annoying thing than anything, but would like it to stop. Note:  I did try to do the chkdsk and  sfc /scannow, neither would do anything, just a window flash but nothing ran.

Did you run chkdsk and sfc in an elevated (Run as adminstrator) Command prompt?

These commands not only need to be run from the Command Prompt, but you also need to be using a administrator account.


Do the following to open the Command Prompt.


Press the windows keywindowskey_zps092d5c75.png  and the X key to open the Windows Mobility Center menu.


When the menu opens select Command Prompt (Admin).


The Command Prompt will look similar to the image below.




Take either command sfc /scannow or chkdsk /f and type in at the end of C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32>, then press Enter.

Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life.  You never know when one will leave you.
