This started about a day ago. I was in outlook and went to check my email, and i got a corrupt file error. Eventually causing a system crash after trying to restart outlook several times.

Windows eventually ran a Chkdsk /f and fixed a ton of corrupt files mostly in the hidden folders F:\DOCUME~1\Owner\LOCALS~1\Temporary Internet Files\Content.Word\

I have run chkdsk again to be sure everything was good, additionally i ran SpinRight 6 on my HDD to check for errors, i did not do a full check where it writes the data (refreshes) the disk surface. that takes about 24 hours on my 500gb hdd. i instead opted for the shorter version which just verifys data can be read sucessfully. and everything checked out ok... So I'm assuming the HDD is fine. It does have a 5 year warranty.

I'm still getting frequent errors in IE and FF, not so much in outlook any more, the program crashes, or i get a BSOD and crash.

My Application event log shows the following errors upon reboot.

All with Event ID:1000
Faulting application firefox.exe, version 1.8.20080.40413, faulting module unknown, version 0.0.0.0, fault address 0x02020204.

System log shows this around the same time:

Evend ID: 55
The file system structure on the disk is corrupt and unusable. Please run the chkdsk utility on the volume F:.

They seem to be related. Its difficult for me to troubleshoot this thurougly because i need my PC for work M-F. So a 24hr dsk check is difficult to get done.

Any Ideas?

After doing some thinking, I think it may be my CPU. I have a E2180 that i've OCed to 3ghz. with vcor up to 1.45v i think after a month of those speeds something may have become damaged. I'll have to test the theory out somehow.

Thats possible, just set everything to stock settings and see if the problems go away.
