I've had a small window at the bottom conter pop up all the time since last night.

It says,

VProtictor.vprot.exe-CorruptFile

Please run Chkdsk utity

I have no idea what any of this stuff is for what it does.

Looks like VPROT is part of AVG Antivirus. CHkDsk is a valid Windows tool to ironically enough Check your Hard Drive. Go ahead and let ChkDsk run and remove and reinstall AVG. (If you have it).

I work in IT AVG is not a good anti virus program. Remove it and install Microsoft Security Essentials. PM if you have any questions.

You have at least 1 file on your hard drive that has become corrupt on your system.

you can go to a command prompt and type in chkdsk /r and press Enter


if you are using windows 7 you might need to run it as an administrator by:

1. Open the Start Menu.

2. Click on All Programs and Accessories, then right click on Command Prompt and click on Run as administrator.

3. Enter chkdsk /r and press Enter

** in either situation you might see:

The type of the file system is NTFS.
Cannot lock current drive.

Chkdsk cannot run because the volume is in use by another
process. Would you like to schedule this volume to be
checked the next time the system restarts? (Y/N)

just type Y and hit enter. Restart your system and the checkdisk will run as it is rebooting. It will find the problems and fix it if it can....

Thanks guys.

I do have AVG Antivirus, the coumpter repair guy put it in last time I had to take it to him. So far it's been alright but that little window is not only bugging me but I was worried something was happening.

Today I'll start trying to do what you all said but if it looks like I might be doing something wrong then I'll just take it back to him.
