I've seen this issue before on XP as well as with the lastest update, after auto updates, fix both earlier issues (1 was mine) by using the recovery console and running chkdsk /f. This last time a couple of 3 finger shuffles resolved it (mine again but this time I have the drive dual booting with Slackware 13 couldn't be pestered looking for the CD.).

Well it is now being claimed (by MS of course) that the root cause was probably malware, such as Daonol, and not MS's own November security updates at all. Who knows? !!
