Been having trouble with your PC? Applications freezing, wireless internet dropping constantly? If so, try this quick fix submitted by one of our visitors.
I am running Windows XP as my OS. I started the process by going to the “Start” menu and choosing My Computer â€“ right click on your C drive â€“ choose properties â€“ tools tab â€“ check volume for errors portion of the screen and click â€œcheck nowâ€ button. I had to shut down and restart, and then the process took a good 3 hours of unattended disk cleanup. The result was a rewriting of several system .dll files that had been partially written to bad sectors, and immediately after performing this time consuming task I saw much improved performance and system stability.
As you can see, its a pretty simple process, albeit a bit time consuming. However, if it gets the job done and the problems fixed then it is time well spent!
