    Hello

    I'm using Vista Home Premium on a Compaq Presario. I had a message on
    day that said "Bluetooth Peripheral Device" was not installed. M
    Bluetooth has been working fine before. I thought maybe somethin
    corrupted the files or something.

    I tried to do a system restore, but windows wouldn't let me cos I ha
    some disk errors. My chkdsk.exe wouldn't run on startup, because afte
    running the sfc command, it said my autochk.exe was corrupted.
    replaced it with autochk.exe from both the Vista and XP version (sf
    command of the files showed no integrity violations). But anyways, eve
    after replacing it my sfc command still says its corrupted. Now it's go
    me worried what else is corrupted. I'm sure my disk must be prett
    messed up

    I'm hoping there's someway I can fix it. I'd probably only do a recove
    to its original state as a last resort

    Thanks! :

    If the network is not usable as is then you may have to reset th
    factory image. For future reference I'd recommend getting an externa
    USB drive(if you don't already have one) and doing image backups. Yo
    can get a free image backup program called Paragon Drive Backu
    Express(I use the Personal version $40 but the free one works with a fe
    less features.) If you do frequent backups and your system gets hosed
    when you restore the image you only lose changed made since your las
    backup. Way less frustrating than laying a restore on since all you
    installed programs work as they did when backed up
