You could also try running CCleaner and cleaning up the Prefetch folder. In the Cleaner section, on the Windows tab, check only the "Old Prefetch data" option. Also, ensure everything is unchecked in the Applications tab. Run the cleaner afterward.

You could also locate the file in the Prefetch folder or manually cleanup that folder yourself. It's located at C:\WINDOWS\Prefetch

Read this Microsoft article to learn more about the Prefetch folder:

Although it is self-maintaining, you shouldn't be getting error messages like this so stepping in is a good course of action this time. Manually cleaning it regularly isn't necessary.

Apologies if I don't respond to your reply immediately. I don't check this site daily, but you're welcome to PM me as a reminder.

Follow the path you gave and delete the file:
camera monitor.exe-03FFBACB.pf

Reboot.

With the given symptoms there should be no need to touch the other files in that folder (even with CCleaner). A new file will be produced when you need it.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks

making any change to the file system without first running chkdsk /f is insane or shows a complete lack of understanding of disk/file system operations.

You should always listen to a message saying run chkdsk. It indicates there is file system corruption.

I agree run chkdsk first, particulary as this has been requested by the system.

If the problem still exists after that it is quite safe to delete just the specific prefetch file. All it contains is the data in order to quickly run the program and it will be regenerated next time you do. The file does not arrive until the program has been run and will self delete if unused for a length of time.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks
