 Security Descriptors

Running Norton disk Doctor detects error in "Security
Descriptors". I tried having the chkdsk run at startup
wioth the fix, but no luck. My guess is the disk is
locked due to the swap file. My questions?
1. How best to correct these.
2. How did the get corrupted. (I'm networked to my wife's
sys. and I moved over some files from her computer. could
this be the problem?)

I would really appreciate an E-mail response to
Thanks, Jack

1.Can't fix bad Security Descriptors

    I have the home edition of XP.  I have installed all the updates including SP1 and any updates that followed.

    I have 2 hard disks.  I had a crash and discovered that I had disk problems when I ran Norton Disk Doctor (NDD) from Norton System works 2002 without checking the "fix errors" option.  It showed that I had index errors on one disk and security descriptor errors on both disks.

    I then checked "fix errors" and ran NDD again.  This time it fixed the index errors but not the security descriptor errors.  I ran it again - first without the "fix errors" checed to see what was going on, then with it checked to fix the errors.  I went through that several more times, then again.  I selected the "check free space option", and that didn't help either.

    Then I discovered how to launch ChkDsk from explorer by selecting properties.  I selected all tests.  Then after each attempt, I would run NDD again to see the result.  After one such attempt it seemed to fix the security descriptors on both disks, but it also added more index errors.  Running ChkDsk again fixed the index errors and brought back the security errors.  

    Do I have a real problem, or am I just being mislead by NDD?

    Is there any way out of this mess -- short of reinstalling WinXP
