I am at present experiencing difficulty with the above when I run the programme it never completes the task because it is interrupted over and over, the same applies when I run scan disk .. how do I remedy this problem.
This method works for me with both Scandisk and Defragmenter:
1.Save any information in any open applications. 2.Close all open programs. 3.Turn off any active screensavers. 4.Hit CTRL-ALT-DEL. A Close Program box will appear, select any program exept for "Explorer" and "Systray" and click on End Task. 5.Repeat Step 4. until all programs except "Explorer" and "Systray" are closed. 6. Run Scandisk or Defragmenter. After they finish reboot your computer.
You could also try installing the free "Bigfix" utility which can identify and help you with problems like this when they happen.
