Hi, did a quick search and did not find anything similar.

I run XP Pro on my computer. When I run System Mechanic (either 6 or 7 problem persists) the diagnostics shows an error on the hard drive. While I attempt to repair it using System Mechanic computer reboots. This happens only if I log in under my account. While logging in from my wife's or son's accounts SysMech runs fine, but cannot fix the hard drive error.

I ran both antivirus (McAfee and a couple of on-line scanners) and antispyware (Spybot S&D and Windows Defender) but none of the programs report any infections.

Anyone had this problem? Any help would be appreciated.

I run Sys. Mech Pro 6 and never had your problem, have you tried to run it logged in as Administrator? :thumbsup:

It is an administrator account. Also, Windows CheckDisk cannot find any errors.

Try one of the free tools available from the hard drive manufacturer's web site. If it comes up clean, then I'd suggest uninstalling and reinstalling the System Mechanic program
My browser caused a flood of traffic, sio my IP address was banned. Hope to fix it soon. Will get back to posting as soon as Im able.
