    I think you should back up anything important from the hard disk (thats if the data hasnt all been erased yet) and then format the drive, then reinstall operating system, although I know chewieuk is gonna hate me for saying it lol.

    ya i agree the hard drive is probably going. its got too many bad sectors on it.

    how old is the drive? if its old then it would probably be wise to buy a newer, bigger, faster hard drive to replace it. but if its new id try to get it replaced by the manugacturer.

    Hard drive is 5 months old.

    Its only since shop took it in. Could the disk error that occured have something ot do with it. It stopped at 99% on a check then i had to restart pc and it said their was a disk read error.

    What exactly is the program you&#39;re using, what is it doing and what are these phases?
