Hi peeps i was running ontrack suite 4 (its like norton but is much easier to use) i just done a check on my system to clean files etc etc...after this was done and i clicked on finish etc and it just gives you the results...and this is what it said,

"disk fixer found problems with the file system. run chkdsk with the f/(fix) option to correct these"

So what exactly is this is something on xp itself that i gotto do:confused:

I use ontrack also it says that it found some errors on the disk so basically it is telling you to do a scan disk...

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there https://tinyurl.com/ycpxl
