Hi Peeps

Anyone recommend a good tool (free) to scan my HDD for bad sectors and repair them?

It's all built-in to windows. Open the command program (Programs > Accessories).
Type: CHKDSK /F /V C:

If it asks the question "Would you like to schedule this volume to be
checked the next time the system restarts? (Y/N)
" press Y then enter.
Now close the Command Prompt (red X top right). Windows will check the disk the next time that Windows boots or restarts.
cheers guys - already tried CHKDSK

seems like i have crossed index's somewhere - did a defrag and all seems fine for now.

thanks again - sorry for the delayed thanks - had man flu.
