Cannot Run Scan-Disk

I have OS Windows XP Home Edition and have tried to run scan-disk but on re-start or startup it states it cannot open the volumes to carryout the scan - it proceeds to go through its normal opening procedure - I am also having difficulty in accessing web pages such as E-Bay login, once logged on I ask click on 'My EBay' it does not connect - it also does this when on my homepage (BT Openworld) when I click on 'Inbox' from the homepage - tries to load page but can't - Any Ideas anybody - would appreciate it

Have tried to run scandisk in safe mode, but still says it can only access some files on re-start. so have ticked both boxes and gone for re-start - still coming up cannot access volumes - then opens up as normal - HELP!

Hi, Sounds like another Zone Alarm 5 problem,go off the net uninstall ZA 5 swithch off then reboot scandisk should now work. Don't forget to reinstall ZA 5.

Microsoft as yet do not have a fix for this dilema but the concensus is it is linked to your A/V software, turn off, and try again
