Error message "Security descriptors not fixed"
Posted on 2004-09-08
After running Norton Disk Doctor I get the message "Security descriptors not fixed" When I look at the report it says "Correcting errors in volume bitmap" Norton D Doctor found problems with file system.
It won't fix them either. When I schedule it to run and fix problem at the next start up ( after selecting "fix errors") It still comes up with the same message. I then tried running the CHKDSK with the error checking tool in Windows XP and that tells me "clean volume" or "volume clean" (cant remember which way round) I think that means that it hasn't found anything? I am fairly new to XP so do excuse me if I seem a bit green.
I had read on the net that if I restored it to a previous date it might get rid of the problem. I went back to a restore point (blacked in) that was before this error started but it said it couldn't restore from this point. It wasn't a restore point that I had manually made - it was an automatic restore point that XP puts in when you install new software.
Hope this is all making sense.
I have NTFS file system. All I want is to fix this error. Do I need to worry? All seems well and PC is running fine. Anyone got any ideas?
