each time i run my scandisk it rins for about 5 mins ,then comes up with a massage saying that scandisk has started 10 time,you may need to shut some programs down,(i use a" end it all" program)
so i cant understand that .
whan i run my defrag it never seems to finish it can run for a day and in the end the screen just frezes ?

Try it in Safe Mode. Reboot and just before the Windows screen appears keep tapping F8 key.

This will stop progs running in the background from interfering.

Close down > Screen Saver > M$ Office Fast Find > Anti Virus.

The Screen Saver and Fast Find do not appear to be disabled by Safe Mode.
