Scan Disk & Defrag Problem

  winksey 21:55 03 Sep 2003

When I use Scan Disk it gets so far then starts over and this goes on forever, it does not complete also my defragmenter gets to 10% then says the drive has been altered and goes back to the start time and time again. I have closed all running programs except explorer & systray can anybody help. I am running Windows Me.

Have you turned your anti virus program off, withconcern to defrag, if av on then you won'y get past the 10%

I had this problem and the answer I received was to download DKLITE and it really is fast and free.
Some mags have it or search the net.
