  1. Well,those days I have some strange problem with my PC.
    First,when I turn on PC,after Windows XP standard message,there is always some message:
    "Windows needs to check your files on local disc D:.. you can quit this checking,but it's strong recommended that you continue."
    Something like that,it's appearing for month! My PC was working regullary,and now appeared new prob: it's restarting by itself when I'm in the middle of some work on it. There's no anything to 'cause it,but it just restart and then is again message from above :S
    I don't know what do,should I back up my system?

    I really need help with this.

    Thank you,forward

    P.S. Didn't knew where to put on this thread,so it's posted twice in forum-in "Virus and Malware Removal" and here.. Admins can replace it if there's need to;)

    First and foremost I would scan for infections. By the way, do you have two harddrives? Usually C Drive is the main drive.

    Okay, then run ChkDsk in your Run Box. Do a full harddrive diagnostics. Let us know what your results are.
