Registry Hive Corrupted?

  1. When starting up this morning, I had a strange thing happen - it was installing something (I think Windows Messenger 7 or something. I never told it to.) and then it rebooted. And then it wouldn't start. Luckily I was able to get it started by doing a repair or something.

    Anyway, here are the error messages I got in event manager:

    {Registry Hive Recovered} Registry hive (file): '\??\C:\Users\Justin\ntuser.dat' was corrupted and it has been recovered. Some data might have been lost.

    {Registry Hive Recovered} Registry hive (file): '\??\C:\Users\Justin\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows\UsrClass.dat' was corrupted and it has been recovered. Some data might have been lost.

    {Registry Hive Recovered} Registry hive (file): '\SystemRoot\System32\Config\SAM' was corrupted and it has been recovered. Some data might have been lost.

    Did I have a virus? Or was it something else? Doing a full scan with Malwarebytes right now.

    Also of note, after this happened, Noscript disappeared from Firefox.
