It is not a good thing to "get rid of " corrupt files, you need to fix it and get rid of the message! : )

Not knowing what the file does, Av suggests something with Audio or Audio Visual. Have you checked Device Manager to see if any hardware is showing a problem with drivers etc? If there is a problem with drivers or hardware you can try reinstalling first the drivers and then the software that came with the unit. To access Device Manager RIGHT click My Computer and select Properties then click on Device Manager. Problems show up as a yellow exclamation mark. RIGHT click any with the Yellow Exclamation mark and see if the problem is shown (you can select Update Driver here as well.

If this doesn't work,another try would be to download Norton Systemworks from the Symantec site, Located here:

Install it and run Utilities - Find and Fix Problems - WinDoctor.

This will find all your broken links, missing shortcuts, registry errors etc and may fix your problem. It's kinda like tuning and servicing your car, all the bits work smoothly together again.

Note all Operating Systems gradually create broken links to files that are required by programs (a single program may be made up of hundreds of individual files - each one accessed through a link).

Just uninstall NortonSystemworks after you have finished with it (it will only work for 14 days anyway without a key).

Good luck.

Computer very slow ,won't print,forever to load pages, have corrupted files

Several things can slow down the computer: overheating, spyware, not enough RAM etc. If you know for sure you have corrupted files were they corrupted by a virus? You may need to reinstall Vista.

Is it slow when you boot up in safe mode? To boot into safe mode hit (usually) F8 while it is booting up. Let it completely boot into safe mode and then reboot again. Now is if it is behaving better.

To get rid of spyware download the free Spybot Search & Destroy from the net, run the update and then run it to dectect and get rid of the spyware. Spyware tries to send info which can slow down everything.

Overheating - does it feel hot? Is the fan running and pushing air?

If it worked fine before it is unlikely you don't have enough RAM. Windows itself needs at least 256mbs to run well without running other problems.

Again if you know files are corrupted, if they are windows files, you might need to reinstall vista.

System file or data coruption is innevitable. If it is preventing you to make your PS3 work, you'll need to get rid of that corrupted file. To do that you have to format your hardrive, if it won't work try to do a system restore.

MS Outlook office pro 2003 The "Inbox" at the bottom has a icon similar to the "Archive" icon that I have trying to get rid of. When trying to delet it a dialogue box appears stating there is an...

Basically what Outlook is stating is that you just cannt do what you want "unless" the file is made to be a local (on your computer) file or the security of the file is lightened if that's the case. If you are in a network environment, you may not be able to delete the folder and would need to have an administrator get involved. If this is a non-networked machine then it's most likely rights on the files.

Sorry - but cannot phone you. Hope this helps.

Our memory card has corrupt data how do we get rid of it.

There are a lot of reasons data on a ps2 memory card can get corrupted. There is no way to completely get rid of them, but they barely take up any room on the card itself. The only risk is that there is a hightened chance that anything else you put on there could be corrupted at some point.

File Allocation Table corrupted

I got rid of the problem on my own, please read below how I solved it.
Basically, the partition of hard drive was still there but with corrupted data about its files indexes. With a free HDD rescue tool I was able to identify the partition and fix the problems regarding its corrupted indexes (file allocation table and toc).
After fixing the problem, the device became fully working and there's no data loss.

File Corruption

You can try reformatting your player, which would free up nearly all of your disc space and get rid of any files you don't want. But, remember that the Lyra has system files that it needs in order to run. The reformatting won't get rid of those, and I wouldn't recommend trying to delete them manually. Hope this helps!
