Files or folders are cross link

By choy.waigiat ·
When I do a scan disk on the hard disk. An error says "The following files or folders are cross link: C:\windows\application data, C:\windows\msapps". What can I do to solve this problem?

All the programs like : MS Office, Photoshop, Visual Basic etc are gone. Everytime I want to run a program eg: windows explorer, it will say the program has perform an illegal operation.

Anyone can help?

thanks and regards,

Start by setting scandisk to automatically repair errors, and running it again.

You may need to re-install 1 or all programs to repair the damaged and missing files.

Do you know when the problem started?

Was it after a crash or bad shutdown?
If not, I would run scandisk in thorough mode to check the Hard Drive.

If you start getting bad sector errors in scandisk, it is time for a new drive.

At a minimum, now is a good time to back up your data files.
