If that is still the same drive (boot drive) that  I'm thinking it is, she had a few bad sectors on it. it is a very used drive.

Okay.  That explains everything.  Once a few bad sectors start popping up, it's only a matter of time before it gets worse.  Then ultimately, total failure.
 If that is still the same drive (boot drive) that  I'm thinking it is, she had a few bad sectors on it. it is a very used drive. Plus we have had a lot of power outages around that time also. so corrupted files isn't that remote of a possibility. Also not much corrupts a drive better than a over heating computer but unless a few fans all stopped working I doubt that would be the case with her current case.

I've crossed the US / Canadian border many times and it's usually the border guard who has dealt with a lot of stress throughout their shift, and is at the point where they won't take anything from anybody.  With a simple change in tone of voice or a unsatisfactory answer to a question will be enough to make the guard go crazy.  A LOT of people will say bad things about their experiences with the guards of either side.  I have been stopped and searched on both sides of the border.  But it's been my experience that I was treated worse on the Canadian side.  I contribute that to my being from the US side as to why I was treated unfairly.  What do I mean by being treated unfairly?  How about having a guard threaten me with bodily harm, asking what am I trying to hide, when my smart phone crashed while they were trying to search it for one example.  Or how about when a drug sniffing dog makes a false hit in a piece of electronic equipment sitting in my back seat that smells like the animal shelter it came from.  And I was forced face first to the ground while they inspected the item farther.

So it's not always the visitor's fault as to why anyone would be treated poorly at a border crossing.  But in this video's example, maybe it wasn't such a good idea for the guy to pressure the cop and ask, what are you going to do, during the interrogation.  ::) :duh:

There are several states in the US where it is illegal to drive in the left lane of some expressways, when there is only one occupant in the vehicle.

It is a law in Florida that you must turn on your headlights when it is raining.

There are expressways in the state of Montana that have no posted speed limit.  It is up to the drivers to decide what is a reasonable speed to travel.  Yet, you can be ticketed for driving to fast.

In the state of New Jersey, its is illegal to ride a motorcycle or motor driven cycle under 250cc on any major expressway.  Even if it can exceeded the speed limit.
So... Corrupted data eh?  Unless you have done a WHOLE LOT of excessive writes and deletes from that drive, there really shouldn't be any corrupt data.  Could be a fluke from lack of maintenance?   I'd suggest that you do another full check disk procedure, just to be sure.

So what did you wind up doing prior to the reboot?

I did these steps:

  • Ran Hard Disk Sentinel
  • chkdsk C: /F
  • Reboot

Microsoft Windows [Version 10.0.17134.285]
(c) 2018 Microsoft Corporation. All rights reserved.


Beginning system scan. This process will take some time.

Beginning verification phase of system scan.
Verification 100% complete.

Windows Resource Protection found corrupt files and successfully repaired them.
For online repairs, details are included in the CBS log file located at
windir\Logs\CBS\CBS.log. For example C:\Windows\Logs\CBS\CBS.log. For offline
repairs, details are included in the log file provided by the /OFFLOGFILE flag.

I have seen this video before but decided to ask what you guys think since there are so many different opinions on this in the comments like:

Commentors who sided with the Border Patrol:
  • "He deserved it because he didn't answer the questions but started getting an attitude. Kick him out and don't let him back in the country."
  • "Answer the questions without an attitude. I've crossed the boarded 1000 of times. No problem. They will tear your car apart if you're a smart ass."
  • "Dude is just escalating the situation by being a smart ass. If you want to shop in America, shut the hell up and answer the questions respectfully! Moron."
  • "I'm a Canadian and I never had any problem crossing the border. Just answer their question and do not challenge their questioning. They have a duty to do and there is nothing wrong with their questioning format. I totally agree with the border officer's viewpoint."
  • "This is a self-entitled man who is seeking entry into a foreign country, being a jerk. With his attitude, he could have just been refused entry that day."
  • "Omg stfu and let them do their job. What an obnoxious smart ass with a temper. I feel bad for the wife having to live with that b.s. All because of his mouth. SMH"
  • "I personally see no point of escalation by either person. Yes, you are at a federal border, they do have to acknowledge your reasons for the visit. Just because we are Canadians does not automatically entitle us an entry into the US and same goes for US citizens entering Canada.... this could have been nicely resolved if both parties were courteous and did not raise voices. Remember, your tone matters."
  • "Don't like it don't go to the border"
  • "jail that yank asshole"
  • "Sorry..... this woodchuck was pitching for a fight. Why do you think he had a recorder on? The disrespect he showed his wife says he is probably a Muslim testing security. Is there a recording of him treating the judge this way? Would love to hear it. Probably cried like a baby."

Commentors who sided with the Canadian man:
  • "The officer was rude and had an antagonizing attitude and inflection of voice. Canadian said they did not know where they are going to at the mall. I think the mall was specific enough."
  • "The United States is slowly becoming Nazi Germany..... "what stores are you going to" is a ridiculous question.. and having an attitude does NOT make you a criminal or a terrorist. Question: is have an attitude a felony or misdemeanor?"
  • "Iím an American citizen and very disappointed about how these border patrol guards escalated this situation. I listened to the tape and I didnít hear where this Canadian guy threatened them."
  • "Iím still surprised how they roughed up this guy. When I go to Canada they donít give me that kind of treatment or attitude like that. De-escalation is what we need to teach our police and our border patrol."
  • "I'm an American and a super conservative and Constitutionalist. These border patrol guards overstepped their authority. And dignity I must say. This man never once threatened anyone. We Americans want our neighbors from the north and the south of us to come here and spend money. It helps our economy. "
  • "this is power gone mad..but Americans are used to power-hungry cops...Canadians give respect when they get respect"

The border still angers me :P I have not went across the border since ... well .. last time I went to PA :P
So what did you wind up doing prior to the reboot?
Lol remember last time you were here we looked and now they are all through computers at the yards? Will ask Shawn though. Or maybe Dave knows.  All I could find was and as you can see they no longer have the U-Pull-Em anymore ... even the search feature sucks now.

Ok.  Still, a good used unit can cost much less then a new unit.  So it's worth a shot to check one out.

I will have to call around then.
