    Every time I run Error-checking, it restarts my computer runs then my
    computer fails to start after the scan. I allow startup repair to scan and
    it says there are corrupt system files and i allow it to run then my system
    starts correct. Then i've tried scanning again same number of errors in
    Error-checking then it fixes, failed boot, same cause for failed boot.

    Please help.

  2. You can see the details of what chkdsk found and fixed in Administrative
    Tools\Event Viewer. Look under Windows Logs\Application for an entry from
    source Winlogon.

    But it sounds like a bad hard drive. Call the dealer.

    Thanks David

    Here is part of the log can anyone tell me what i could do to fix the problem.

    Source: VSS
    Level: Error

    Description:
    Volume Shadow Copy Service error: Unexpected error querying for the
    IVssWriterCallback interface. hr = 0x80070005. This is often caused by
    incorrect security settings in either the writer or requestor process.

    Operation:
    Gathering Writer Data

    Thanks.

  4. There doesn't seem to be /any/ documentation on that error. It seems to me
    that I read another post about that error in this forum, but that there was
    no resolution. Have you changed any security settings on your machine that
    you weren't quite sure about? I'm also wondering about the configuration of
    your machine: could it possibly be a dual boot machine with XP? Also, this
    problem may be related in some way to your chkdsk errors, e.g., if some of
    the files that were corrupted were part of .NET Framework.

    Is that the /only/ error in the log? The one's that most I'm interested in
    are from source Winlogon at the time that you do the disk check -- and
    they're not errors but "Information" entries in the log. (You can copy and
    paste entire log messages in your posts. We won't mind at all!)

  6. Hmmm... I just don't think this is the cause of the problem that you
    initially described. In fact, this error /may/ be a result of that problem
    (although maybe not).

    And I regret that I made a mistake before: the results of the disk check
    will be stored in an "information" event 1001 from source Wininit. It is
    /not/ an "error" message.

    Without seeing the results of the disk check, I still think it's a bad hard
    drive.

  7. I concur that the VSS error is not the cause of the chkdsk problem. Is this
    a brand new computer by chance?

    It is a new computer
    And i'm not at it so i'll send the results later.

    Could it maybe a problem with check disk since it is alone and also part of
    startup repair?

  9. chkdsk will tell you if there are problems with your hard drive. Trust it.
    I've never known it to actually /cause/ a problem, only to reveal (and often
    fix) problems that already existed. (It is true that it sometimes will
    appear to make a problem worse than it was, but its not really chkdsk's
    fault.)

    Safest bet: I think you need a technician to look at your system.

    I'll be able to send the results in 0.5-2hrs
    I ran one of the disk checks so it would scan for/repair bad sectors but it
    found none that's why I think it is not the hard drive btw.

    Way to go microsoft
    It turns out some of my system files got corrupted by the registration fixer
    program microsoft recommended. Lucky that i had one system restore point
    that could work to fix the problem.
    Everything is fine now.

    Thanks for everyone's help.

  12. Well, good! I guess that I didn't understand your first post. But I'm glad
    you got it worked out.
