    I have a few corrupt files on my system. A few of them are in the recycle bin, but since they are corrupt, I can't delete them. I also have another file, located at C:WINDOWSPrefetchWKSCAL.EXE-10AB18FB.pf. How can I fix these files from being corrupted?

    Open a Command Prompt (Start--->Accessories--->Command Prompt) and type chkdsk /f It will tell you that it will do it the next time you reboot. Then reboot and it will run the checkdisk.

    Are you able to delete the files from the dos prompt?
