This is worse than I thought.
- CHKDSK – OK
- Virus Scan – OK
Still, the computer acts like it’s got problems reading the hard drive. In fact, it timed out on a system restore and popped an error message that leads me to believe there is some sort of hard drive problem.
I’m currently defragging, with the thought that this moves and rewrites disk blocks. Maybe it will uncover the problem.
At some point soon, I’ll backup whatever will copy off the machine, reformat and reinstall Windows. I hope it doens’t get to that.
