Alright, this is my first time posting on a forum and I have no idea how this works, but I'm calling out for help.

Basically, I was doing some basic sprite work on PDN when all of a sudden my laptop blue screened. After rebooting, PDN kept giving a weird error and wouldn't open, after several tries I uninstalled and tried to reinstall, but every time when it's at the installing step it gives me this:

 

System.TypeInitializationException: The type initializer for 'PaintDotNet.SystemLayer.FileSystem' threw an exception. ---> System.IO.IOException: The file or directory is corrupted and unreadable.

   at System.IO.__Error.WinIOError(Int32 errorCode, String maybeFullPath)
   at System.IO.FileSystemEnumerableIterator`1.MoveNext()
   at System.Collections.Generic.List`1..ctor(IEnumerable`1 collection)
   at System.IO.Directory.GetFiles(String path, String searchPattern)
   at PaintDotNet.SystemLayer.FileSystem..cctor() in D:\src\pdn\src\SystemLayer\FileSystem.cs:line 513
   --- End of inner exception stack trace ---

You need to run chkdsk -- something on your hard drive got corrupted. Chkdsk is usually pretty good at fixing it though.
