CHKDSK System Restore Loop

I have a Toshiba netbook with Win 7 Starter installed.

Recently I was advised by WIndows to run chkdsk due to disk errors.

However, when I attempt to run CHKDSK, I'm advised to use System Restore because a recently installed program interferes with CHKDSK.

And of course, when I attempt to use System Restore, it advises me to run CHKDSK first.

Any ideas how to proceed?

What software have you recently installed? Also for system restore do you use boot CD or just Windows inside tools?

I haven't installed any new software recently........other than windows updates.

Thus far, I've been using the internal Windows systems tools

Do you have external CD-ROM? If yes then in Windows 7 search tab type Backup & Recovery. In this tool create Recovery CD - boot the machine from it - run system restore. Does it let you restore?

Try booting into Safe Mode, and then run chkdsk again.
