Try a windows repair, 

Should work fine after that.

As Sean said, it seems that the partition is corrupted. Do a chkdsk/fsck or
something on it to fix it. If that only fixes it temporarily, do it again,
capy all the files off of the windows partition , reformat it and put them
back on. Or just reinstall =]
