hi, i can not defrag my drive because it tells me it has errors, it wont scan the disk because it keeps restarting, so i thought i would do it in safe -mode, and it still will not do it, owing to it keeping restarting, it said programmes are running..could someone PLEASE advise, it is doing me in....thanks

Had this happen a few times too. Check out this microsoft support page: click here;en-us;Q222469

Remember to turn off any screen savers too. They are the most common interference with scandisk I can think of.

Boot your computer into DOS, and from there you can run Defrag.exe ,dont know if you tried that yet, while your there try Chkdisk.exe.
Hope this small byte of info helps
