Hi,
I tried everything to fix this but this message still shows if I try to check for errors on my drive C: using PowerQuest Partition Magic 8.0.I thought running microsoft chkdsk can solve this problem but not workable.

What can I do? Is it possible that this is a hardware malfunction, like bad harddrive? Or is there any other way to fix it?

And is it possible, that my Windows XP has troubles from time to time to start-up because of this error message?What harms can this error pose to my PC?

I would appreciate every help I can get.

First of all, this is the BASIC forum. In case you didn't know, BASIC is a programming language, not a Partition Magic component or something.

As for the actual problem, try a virus scan.
