Run chkdsk from an elevated command prompt. Here are the steps: Click start
and type CMD, then right click the entry that appears in the menu and choose
'run as administrator' (this step is necessary regardless of whether you are
running an admin account). Click continue at the UAC prompt. From the
command prompt, run 'chkdsk C: /r'. You will get an error message that the
drive cannot be locked, and would you like this to be scheduled to run on
the next restart. Type 'y' and hit <enter>. Close the command prompt, then
restart the system.
