what exactly happens (error messages ?) when you attempt either in windows?

I always defrag and scandisk under safe mode as you then have minimum use on the hard drive.
If you are running Norton SW don't use this to defrag as you can't use this software in safe mode
and using defrag under system tools gives you a different result to Norton.

how far WILL scan disc run before it stops?? and you will probably need to run scan disc first before disc defragment(are you running it in standard or thorough mode?( ie the scan disc bit))
