Please Help Me With My Computer!?!?!

After a good, long run, we have decided to close our forums in an effort to refocus attention to other sections of the site. Fortunately for you all, we're living in a time where discussion of a favorite topic now has a lot of homes. So we encourage you all to bring your ravenous love for discussion to Chuck's official Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr and Instagram. And, as always, you can still post comments on all News updates. Thank you for your loyalty and passion over the years. These changes will happen June 1.

OK. So I went to defragment my hard drive. I get this error message:

Defragmentation of (C:) has been aborted due to inconsistancies that were dectected in the filesystem. Please run CHKDSK or SCAN DISK on (C:) to repair these inconsistancies, then run Disk Defragmenter again.

I have Windows XP. So anyway, I ran CHKDSK and it looked like it did something, deleted some files, but when I ran the defragmenter again I got the same error message.

I tried to run SCAN DISK, but I don't know the correct way to type it in to make it work. I kinda think that CHKDSK was in some kind of safe mode, but I really don't know a lot about this.

If anyone can help me I will be eternally grateful and you will earn my respect and admiration. Please, somebody, anybody, help me!
