About the hard drive CHKDSK. That one has long discussions with the most common advice is (a) let it run and (b) do that in safe mode.
Hi. I always have Zone Alarm and Avira running. Then I use other prgs to keep my XP computer clean.
Well, a week or so ago, software began opening at random. It has gotten worse. The more it is on, the more open uop.
I have run Avira, Avast, AVG Rootkit, TrendMicro, and more. to no avail.
I ran chkdsk/r once, manualy and now, it wants to do a chkdsk at every boot.
The hard drive is only about 1 year - 1 1/2 years old.
Any ideas? - Please help!
