Hello,

Please attempt a chkdsk or sfc/scannow from command prompt.

Let me know if that works.

Regards

P.S. Did you get a virus?

Hello Munch, (You can call me Ambucias instead of "there":)))

You do not lose any data with chkdsk or sfc/scannow, those are repair tools before we can look for any viruses.
