Though I haven’t encountered it yet but that’s a typical system error. If that problem happens very frequently, it can be a big headache because you can lose data and it can also corrupt files in case you are copying or moving something. You can try the previous post though the command to execute is quite wrong. It will never work.

Since it is obviously a system error probably caused by one or more corrupt system files, you should run the Windows File Checker utility. Click “Start”, “All Programs”, “Accessories”, right-click “Command Prompt” and select “Run as administrator”. Enter your password when you are prompted to continue. In the command prompt window, type without quotes “sfc /scannow” then hit Enter.

Insert your Windows setup CD on the optical drive if you are prompted and then continue. When it is finished, restart your computer and see if the problem happens again. If this doesn’t fix the problem, update your operating system to the latest Service Pack to fix the problem. For users with Windows XP, update your operating system to Windows XP Service Pack 3.

This is the latest and last Service Pack update for Microsoft Windows XP. For users with Windows Vista, download and update your operating system to Windows Vista Service Pack 2. This is the latest and also the last Service Pack update for Microsoft Windows Vista. For users with Windows 7, download and update your operating system to Windows 7 Service Pack 1.

This is the latest and only Service Pack update for Microsoft Windows 7. Microsoft has no plan of releasing future updates for this operating system.
