No harm trying the below...
TFC(Temp File Cleaner):
Please download TFC to your desktop,
Save any unsaved work. TFC will close all open application windows.
Double-click TFC.exe to run the program.
Click the Start button in the bottom left of TFC
If prompted, click "Yes" to reboot.
Note: Save your work. TFC will automatically close any open programs, let it run uninterrupted. It should not take longer than a couple of minutes , and may only take a few seconds. Only if needed will you be prompted to reboot.
I advise you keep TFC on your desktop aand run it say at least once per week as it is a very effective piece of software for cleaning out temp' files etc with XP etc.
Note: for the CHKDSK portion you may refer to this tutorial of mine here and follow the instructions for Graphical Mode if you so wish.
