Disk Consistency Error, But Can't Run a Disk Check

I have an issue with my computer. I turned it on, and got the message as follows:

Checking File system on C:
The type of file system is NTFS

One of your disks needs to be checked for consistency.
You may cancel the disk check, but it is strongly recommended that you continue
Windows will now check the disk.
****Here is where the issues began****
Cannot open volume for direct access.
Autochk cannot run due to an error caused by a recently installed package.
Use the system restore feature from the control panel to restore to a point prior to the recent software package installation.
An unspecified error has occurred: (766f6c756d652e63 3fl)

This morning I decided to fix the problem. I went and ran a system restore. When I tried to run that it said:

The Local Disk C: has errors.
Windows has detected file system corruption on Local Disk (C: ). You must check the disk for errors before it can be restored.

I schedule a check and restart the comp. The first check mentioned above runs, and fails, then my scheduled one runs. It is the same kind of check, just scheduled by me. It also fails. So the check is telling me to run a system restore, and the system restore is telling me to run a check, therefore, I can't do either, and so I can't find a way to fix my computer. How do I fix this?

  1. Hi

    Boot up PC from a windows 7 DVD or emergency recovery cd or USB memory versions
    It should detect the windows and offer automated repairs

    But I would get a Hirens 15.2 cd and run some hard disk diagnostics first
    To be sure there is no physical damage before proceeding to use repairs which call chkdsk
    There are a set of manufacturer specific diagnostics on one menu
    The seagate version will test most brands

    From the mini XP menu you get WD data lifeguard for windows which again will test most brand of hard drive

    I did not have the chance to get the Hirens CD, but I did get a hold of the Windows 7 CD. I tried to run a repair, but it said that the system restore files (or something along those lines) were not the correct files for the copy of windows i was running. I tried both the 64 bit and 32 bit disks, but neither worked. The same error appeared both times. I am running 54 bit Windows Home Premium, and that is the same disk I used. I would rather not re-install windows to fix this error. What should I do?
