When a file is written to the hdd is has a integrity value applied to it, if the file changes you get a mismatch. Normally from a virus or if the file hasn't written correctly.

At what point does that message appear? After Windows starts up?
Before Windows starts?

Is there a file name associated with that message?

The message comes up before windows starts and there's no file name. Just the message on a black screen.

Can you get far enough into Windows to do a System Recovery to an earlier date?
