Disk error

I have a Windows 7 PC.  In error I selected an XP version of a printer driver and installed it. I received a disk error message. When I try to do a restore is says the disk has to be checked for errors.  When I click "Check the disk for errors" it states the disk can't be checked while it's in use, and do I want to schedule it on the next restart.  I replied yes and it does not do the check on restart.  I've gone through the process several times with the same result. (Definition of insanity?)

Hello leewallin,

If it unable to autostart the disk check on reboot than try with other option it will definitely work.

Open my Computer and right check on C drive go to properties >>Click on Tab  "Tool" >>
Under error checking click on Check now>> and check both option "Automatically fix file system errors and Scan for and attempt recovery of bad sectors and click on start.

Please let me know if this works.

Regards,
