    Could be one of two possibilities:

    1. Faulty drive

    2. Registry Tracks pointing to the drive

    Download and run CCleaner
    Install
    then run
    select "Run Cleaner" (note: Internet Explorer must be closed)

    Also inside the same program, on the left hand side is "Registry" -> Scan for issues"
