Most of the time this means there is a problem with the filesystem or possibly bad sectors on the hard drive. If you are running windows 2000, XP, or Vista, follow these steps:

Click on Start, go to Run, type in "cmd". In the command prompt, type "chkdsk C: /r /f"

That will tell chkdsk (Check Disk) to fix the filesystem and locate/repair any bad sectors. It won't be able to run while you are using the computer, so it will ask to run on the next startup. Be sure to say yes, then restart the computer and let chkdsk run.

As for why it happens on system startup is a little more bothersome. Unless you are trying to delete something, I would suggest getting and running Spybot Search & Destroy and if you don't have any antivirus, AVG Free (http://free.grisoft.com). Both are free and quite effective.

Try and download " Long Path Tool " is also useful in situations where you see these error messages: Cannot read from source file or disk, there has been a sharing violation, cannot delete file or folder, the file name you specified is not valid or too long, the source or destination file may be in use and many other file managing errors.

5. Delete all the files in the folder excluding the "index.dat" file by selecting all of them then press

the keys "SHIFT - DEL (Delete)" on your keyboard to delete the files permanently.

6. Close the window after you have deleted all the text document files.

4. A new window will open and will give a list of files.

5. Delete as many files as you can in the folder by selecting all of them then press

the keys "SHIFT - DEL (Delete)" on your keyboard to delete the files permanently.

6. If there will some items that cannot be deleted, that's alright, you can SKIP deleting them.

7. Close the window after you have deleted most of the files if not all.



Disk Clean-up:


1. Click on Start, and then click My Computer or Computer.

"A disk read error occurred. Please click ctr +


You have as it states, a disc read error which means you have errors on the hard drive.
As soon as you get into your system run CHKDSK/F, that will attempt to restore the damaged files.
Make backups and look for a replacement hard drive.
Hope that helps.

I had vista home prenium on my pc. I have famatted my HD and i can read the folders i have encrypted with acer edata security. what can i do?


Hello there!

How i managed to understand you have encrypted your folders with some encriptor , then deleted operative system , installed fresh copy and you cannot acess those folders anymore. There should be decryptor which works the same thing in opposite direction , search on their website maybe you will find it.

Also to advice you, next time make good profile of backup files, decrypt everything locked on old operative system, then setup new one and acess all files like normal.

Sincerely

My pc crashes randomly.


Go into the Event Viewer and see what kind of errors are reported there. Instructions here and here. Let us know what error codes you find.
Did you delete Edata or uninstall it. You should be using the uninstall command from Programs & Features, or you're going to jam up your system.
I'd say it's time to do some maintenance. Clean out your temp files by running disk cleanup, then scan your system files for corruption by following these instrucitons.
That may take a while, but it's worth it if your games run smoothly and don't hang, isn't it?
Then get back to us with the results, and we'll take it from there...

I hope this information allows you to resolve this issue. If you need further assistance, please post back with a comment to this thread.
If I've managed to answer your question or solve a problem, please take just a moment to rate this post....thanks!

delete/uninstall edata security completely.

Then download a more stable security like AVG, McAfee or Norton, check this site some are having the same problem and this seems to be the best solution.

How i can remove edata security management password


Let me understand, are you trying to access the recovery data on your hard drive? edata is a hidden partion on your hard drive. If you are trying to delete it for space, you need speical software to do it. If you are trying to access it, you can throw acer backup/restore software
