Any error messages?

  vin 18:18 05 Jan 2009

on dic check and defrag it comes up with ' windows was unable to do disc check' and 'This version of Disk Defragmenter does not support running more than one instance.'
They both used to work before.

On system restore it just hangs when i click start after choosing a restore date.

It also comes up with 'Disc Defragmenter could not start'

Re: Defrag - follow the steps above, though it doesn't quite match your problem

Hello Brundle,
Thanks for the assistance.

On the defrag roblen i have done the run option but there is no dfrg.inf file but there is dfrg and another file dfrg.pnf.

I will try the system restore off method.

Hello Brundle,

Hve tried the system restore method but comes up with 'system restore is not able create a restore point, please restart and run the system restore again.'

This did not work.

Tried disabling mcafee before System Restore?

Have tried it with mcafee disabled but will not work.

Tried defrag with mcafee settings but did not work.
