CHKDSK (CheckDisk) is a Microsoft disk utility that verifies the integrity of your file system and the hard disk drive blocks. The default mode scans the file system for logical errors but it will not fix any of the problems it finds. There are two user options that can be selected when running this program. One option tells the utility to fix all the problems it finds in the file system. The other option starts the utility to do an exhaustive check of the disk surface looking for any bad blocks. If any bad block is found, the utility will attempt to recover the data to a new block before it removes the bad one from use. 
Do not wait until you start experiencing problems. Run CheckDisk once a month to see how your disk is doing. If you start seeing lots of bad sectors, consider getting a new disk.

Chrome.exe - corrupt disk the file system structure on the disk is corrupt and unuseable. Please run the Chkdsk utility on the volume C:.


While installing Google Chrome, the installation program detected problems with the file system and wants you to run chkdsk to repair them. Either go to a cmd prompt (or click on Start, Run) and key-in chkdsk /f The /f instructs chkdsk to fix any file system errors it finds as it checks your hard drive, You will receive a message the the disk is currently locked and asking you if you want to run chkdsk the next time the system starts, Respond with Y. Then restart your computer. You will receive a message that a disk check has been scheduled - allow it to proceed. Chkdsk will execute and repair any problems it finds with the file system. After completion, your computer will start up normally. Now you should be able to install Chrome.
