Thread needs solution

when I run Drive monitor I get a High risk error notification - NTFS 57. I follow the insturctions after googling this and end up trying to install a Microsoft fix called "clusprep". But this fails because I'm told there is not enough "storage" (this is a new pc ! ). Thank for any info - please use layman's language.

As I mentioned in the thread immediately above this one (as I type this), this error covers a multitude of sins and even Microsoft knowledge base has no answer as to what causes it, what it means and how to satisfactorily deal with them.

All I can say is that I normally right click in ADM select ignore and they go away for a few weeks and then suddenly come back again for a day or two.
