Hi Guys, got a major problem here. Did a verify of my start up volume and it came back saying it needed to be repaired. So I inserted my Tiger install disc and from the utilities menu there tried to repair the volume. It came back saying:

"Error: The underlying task reported failure on exit"

The report above this was as follows:

"fsck_hfs(100)malloc:* Deallocation of a pointer not malloced:0xbc000; This could be a double free () or free () called with middle of an allocated block; Try setting environment variable MallocHelp to see tools to help debug"

Now I have no idea what all this means only that my volume cannot be repaired. Can anyone help?
