    Hi Guy's:

    For a long time I have had these cross linked files which cause my partition manager and defraggers issues. The advice I have so far follows:

    "C: partition really has cross linked files and if you apply CHKDSK one more time to them you would get the same problems you've gone from recently. I mean the disappearance of start menu, problems with printer etc. Here could be the only workaround re installation of Windows, but as it works right now you can keep it. Later when you have free time for this I would strongly recommend either to roll back to Windows installed by Dell (from dell recovery partition) or reinstall Windows manually (reformat the C: drive first). Only these steps could solve the cross link files problem in an absolutely harmless way. Or contact Microsoft support team and ask for safe way to fix this cross link files. "


    Is there a safe procedure or tool that will find and repair this issue?
