I am not sure what "vopt99" is but I would suspect you might have a boot sector virus maybe? Try to run a scan with new virus definition files and see if anything comes up.

I saw this once on a PC and I could not solve it so I did and fdisk and format and started over.

Possibly a few things...

VOPT is Virtual Optimizer by GoldenBow Systems. Great defragger, fast as ****.

Anyways, it could be a few things. Im assuming that your running Windows NT Workstation 4.0. Well, Vopt99 is for Windows 95/98 not NT. There is a program, VoptNT 2.x for Windows NT systems. You'll need to use that program. What could've happened is that it (vopt99) tried to access your hard drive saw that it was NTFS and choked. Or, you could be out of disk space.

Could you provide more details? Thanks.

But, your best bet is to download the new version of vopt from www.vopt.com. g'luck!

I would run a thorough scandisk for starters to see if anything is damaged on the file system. If that doesn't work, you may want to run from the DOS Prompt C:\fdisk /mbr
That will repair your master boot record.

What OS do you have?? If you have NT and used a 95 defrager, then I am sorry to say but you are SOL. Win 95 uses FAT and NT used NTFS. Your Hard Drive will be ruined and you will need to format and start all over again from scratch. So I hope you have 95/98.
