    Maybe but what makes you think that although it maybe as my harddisk on which the os is installed is pretty old,is there a way double check that my harddisk is indeed dying,thanks for the quick reply.

    Go to Computer, right-click on the C drive, select Properties, Tools, check now. Place a check mark in both boxes and select "disk check upon next start up". Shut down the computer and start it up. Let the disk check run
