So I have been lurking for a while now and want to come out of the shadows.

 So I have questions and hope someone can help, I'm using Bitcoin-Qt for my wallet and curious thing in that after I get the full blockchain downloaded and it says that I'm up to date, two days later I try to open my wallet and I get a corrupt database message and it wants to download the blockchain all over again.  Fortunately I made a backup and just did a restore but its not the first time this has happened to me, can someone clue in a newbie as to why this is happening.

Thanks!

Welcome.

You can also use blockchain.info with 2FA and you should not have any problems (to get hacked, or the hassle to download the whole chain).

I've been using blockchain.info and armory for a while with NO issues - love them both - but to answer your question please provide some details about your operating system, antivirus, etc.  It's hard to troubleshoot a software corruption issue without these details.

How often and many times it happened?
For a start do full scandisk of your HDD, including sectors. You may also check S.M.A.R.T. values from your HDD

Thank you for all your help I decided to go with blockchain.info, fortunately I only had 1 bitcoin so I transferred it over and it was very easy.

Open4lies, I will do a full scandisk of my hard drive and see what that tells me, thanks

pacojones, I am using Win7 64 bit with Windows Security Essentials.  I am going to check the hard drive and do a scandisk and I usually like to wipe my hard drive once a year I think I will do that today it's been a while, I know you guys may think I am crazy but it's something to do.

make sure to use 2FA on your blockchain.info wallet.

Or even better, use an offline wallet.
