chrome.exe - Corrupt File

by evilduff / April 21, 2011 8:07 AM PDT

I get this message in Windows XP. It suggests I run chkdsk, but when I run chkdsk, it runs in "read only" format and does nothing. The file that is corrupt is a hidden file in a hidden directory in Documents and Settings, so I can't even find it to delete it. I downloaded Google Chrome AGAIN but this did not help the problem. What can I do to fix this corrupt file?

I tried chkdsk /f

Got message the hard disk was protected, but I could run chkdsk /f the next time I rebooted so I said YES, and that chkdsk ran and repaired the problem (I hope). So it has been solved.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
