Everything seems to be running just fine, but this little "balloon" keeps popping up in the lower right corner of the screen. It's a 4 year old VAIO, running XP, and using MSN. This is exactly what it says & how it says it: SEAL synchronization activity:msn.exe-corrupt file the file or directory/documents and settings/default/application data/microsoft/msn/DB/mail(my email address)/index.new is corrupt and unreadable. Please run chkdsk utility. The balloon-thing keeps popping up, and if the computer goes into "standby", when I wiggle the mouse to get the screen back up, there's a message in the middle of the screen that says the exact same thing as above. I haven't installed/downloaded anything new in a long time. Thanks for any hints you can give.
