Question about PC Desktops
If this is on an XP machine, close any programs that are open, click on START>RUN and type in chkdsk /f and click OK.
It may ask if you want to run it on the next start up, tell it yes, and then reboot your computer.
Depending on when and where you are getting the message, this may be early warning signs of a failing hard drive. I suggest you back up any important data as soon as you can.

Tips for a great answer:
you could run the chkdsk disk utility
click start run type cmd then type chkdsk/r/f which will scan for and attempt to repair any bad sectors and automatically fix any corrupt files on your hard drive
click start control panel administrative tools computer management ,disk management right click on your drive select properties click tools you should see click check now click start two boxes
automatically fix files and scan for and attempt recovery of bad sectors place then a tick in both boxes then select check now,start should schedule this task when restart
have no input while the chkdsk utility is in progress any input may further damage your computers operating system and hard drive
hope this helps
