Defrag stops

  Tittlemouse 11:28 02 May 2003

I know this subject has been done before but I have looked in the archives and read all the postings but none of them help me. Why does my defrag (windows) stop on 12% evertime. I have tried in safe mode and my scandisc will complete in standard mode but stops when in thorough mode. Thanks in anticipation.

Try shutting down any progs running in the background. Such as screen saver and anti virus progs.

Press CTRL/ALD/DEL and end task on everything running except explorer. Disable any screen saver powersave items and try again.

I had this problem a few years ago with Windows 98. It would never let me complete a defrag. I tried all these solutions and none worked. The problem only dissapeared when I formatted the hard drive when I gave the PC to a friend.

Sorry about the delay. Just been for my dinner.
Have tried the CRL/ALT/DEL and I don't use a screen saver so it looks as though vaughan007s answer might be the only way. Hope not though. Thanks for trying . Much obliged

When you do the scandisk bit it might be a good idea to choose thorough.
