    I had to force a shutdown after a freeze. I tried to run the chkdsk utility
    from the command line, as administrator, with the parameters /f and /r.
    Instead of the usual screen showing the progress of the disk check, I got a
    screen with the following error message: "Cannot open volume for direct
    access."

    Everything else seems to be working except system restore. I tried that
    twice, using two different restore points, and it failed each time due to an
    "unspecified" error.
