Computer Help! Pleeeeeease!

Okay I'll be the first to admit I totally suck when it comes to computers. I know how to use them to draw and to get on the internet but that aside, yeeeeah I get really confused.

I'm having a couple problems though.

I tried to Defragment my C drive and its not working. The D drive worked fine, but when I hit "defrag" on the PC support center option it gave me an error that said:

"Disk defragmenter has detected that Chkdsk is scheduled to run on the volume HP_PAVILION(C:). Please run Chkdsk /f"

So I look up what this means on the PC support center (I got here by going to Start>Help and Support) and it said that I need to run "Autochk.exe".

Well I go to Start>Run: Autochk.exe and it gives me this message:

"The Autochk.exe application cannot be run in Win32 mode".

I've been getting a similar error message like this lately on stuff that wouldn't have normally been a problem. What is Win32 mode and how in the heck did my computer get that way, and how do I fix it?

Not to mention I've been having some problems accessing my downloaded AIM files. For example I go to My Documents>downloads>(my screenname folder) and it shuts down the explorer window completely, but I can access downloads from other screennames just fine, just mine is completely inaccessable. Which sucks because I have files in there I wanna get out.

Please help! Also, please lemme know what to do in stupidest terms possible...I know that's silly to ask but I'm seriously intimidated by this stuff and I really don't know what the heck is going on.
