Windows Vista corrupt file window\tracing\raps\RASPLAP.LOG

  1. Hello, I have windows vista on my laptop and the last 3 days i am getting this error:

    The file or directory C:\Windows\tracing\RASPLAP.LOG is corrupt and unreadable. Please run the Chkdsk utility.

    This prevents the laptop from going to sleep mode or even on startup windows takes ages to open and then i get to a dos screen where it starts checking the whole C: disk and after i cancel the scanning i am getting this popup file on login screen. The title of the popup window is "loginui.exe".

    This really is bugging me because i basically have to leave my laptop open all the time otherwise it takes too much time to do anything:(

    Thanks in advance.

    The PC is telling you there is a problem and what to do so you need to run chkdsk.

    Following that I would run sfc /scannow from the command prompt (get to the command prompt the same way as above for chkdsk) this will repair any damaged system files.

    With a warning appearing to run chkdsk this might be early signs that your hard drive is failing so back up all your important files just in case.
