    Hi,

    Earlier I cleared my registry with CCleaner. It told me to restart and I had a weird error saying "Hard disk is imminent" etc. I don't know why this has come up, maybe CCleaner has deleted a registry it shouldn't.
    I tried to re install Windows but it won't happen.
    Any ideas?

    This looks like SMART is reporting your HDD is about to fail.

    But why would it say it after I cleared my registry?
    And it comes up when I automatically start the computer, and it's on the I:\ drive. Not my C:\

    Coincidence

    Smart is reporting the imminent failure of your I: drive then. Backup all the data on I: to an external drive and you could then use the drive manufactures drive utility to do a health check.
