I seem to be having trouble using scandisk it keeps restarting likewise Defrag even with most of the running programs shut down via ctrl+alt+del since connecting via Broadband. Is it because that is always running in the background. Thanks for any help in this matter.
Run both in safe mode as madboy says but I think it`s F8 on most computers. I know it can be different so try F8 first but watch the screen during the POST (That`s the white words on black screen) before Windows boots - it may tell you which function key to press.
Hi, I run Win 98SE and BB and would suggest that you first unplug the Broadband system and then close every thing down including your screen saver, Anti virus, Firewall, etc. Run Scandisk then run Defrag. If you go to click here and download a file called newdefrag.zip (near the bottom of the page) this will give full instructions about installing the Defrag File originally used in Windows ME. I now use this as it is about 10 times faster than the normal Win98 Defrag.exe file. Call the original Defrag file in C:\Windows DefragOLD.exe and, after unzipping the file from the above site, copy it into C:\Windows. If you have any problems you can simply reverse the defrag files and get back to square one but I have been using the Win ME Defrag file for months now with no troubles whatsoever. Reconnect the Broadband and re-boot. Hope this helps.
