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.
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
