I have a balloon that pops up telling me that C:\WINDOWS is corrupted or unreadable Run the chkdsk utility.

How do I do that?

Thanks!

Windows XP

I should tell you that I had a previous error where the registry was corrupted and the folks at Dell sent me a disc to reinstall windows XP.  After the reinstall I started getting these balloons.

The file or directory \WINDOWS is corrupt and unreadable.
Please run the Chkdsk utility.

What CD is it? Recovery CD, or Windows XP CD? What does it say?

Start / Run chkdsk /r and hit Enter...
DO NOT interrupt it ...let it run til complete and re-boot.
