Why is it that my pc will no longer do a scan disk, or a defrag, is it because i have used norton antivirus scan?

try disabling the antivirus software and then running them. my computer will defrag with no problems with antivirus running but it may need disabling while carrying out these processes.

I have tried again, with the antivirus disabled and it still does not work, it comes up with the pop up, and it just says 0% complete, when you click onto show details the page is blank.

how long did you leave it. sometimes it can take a while to get going

try clicking Analyze if you are on XP. Once that's done click Defragment.

Try in Safe Mode to stop background processes interrupting. To do this reboot and keep tapping the F8 key just before the Windows screen appears. Then use the arrows key to select Safe Mode from the menu that appears.

I try again this time i'll leave it a little longer, I'm running "ME"

over rules Windows System Tools.

This may be your problem, rather than NAV

so while i have norton utilities , i can no longer do manual defrag or scan disk? I've just tried again with Norton disable and it still didn't work. Cheers for that. Sheps

What actually happens (in detail please)?

Also, try Diskeeper Lite click here, rather than ME's own defragger, sheps.
