I've had this computer since about last april. I built it myself, and it has a Western Digital 160 GB Caviar hard drive, which I think is my problem.
For many months, I've had the weird problem that whenever I try to cut and paste a file, it gets corrupted in the process, and I am denied access to it. I can't access, change, or delete it. I could still copy and paste with no problem. I just lived with this inconvenience for a while, but lately all kinds of strange things have been happening.
Images don't show up in programs:
I get weird errors in browsers on every other page i visit
Web pages get screwed up for no reason in internet explorer but still work in firefox - and the problem still happens after multiple chkdsks and reboots:
The same page in firefox:
When i play simcity, many of the images don't show up. Often when I open folders, "Windows Explorer" crashes.
these are just some of the problems ive been experiencing. I have no clue why it's been happening. Any ideas?
