{Data Error}
« on: January 08, 2013, 03:33:14 PM »
Ok, so on my laptop, it has been freezing up non stop. I can barely get it to do anything. When I was finally able to get it to do a boot scan, every file it scans is coming back with {Data Error}

File C:\dell\drivers\R260223\|>dell0006.chm|>index.htm Error 0xC000003E {Data Error}

I can get to safe mode, but I can't find anything that is acting screwy.  When I try to do a full or quick scan, it will do ok for 2 to 3 minutes, then starts dragging. I had a quick scan last for almost 24 hours, and only get through 5% of the files, and it slowed to scanning >200kbps when it normally does 2-3 mgps. A full scan started at over 200 megs a second, and slowed to the same speed as the quick scan.

I would show logs, but I can't get any, so I am having to type all of this out by hand.

That sounds like a hard drive problem

Run chkdisc /f
