Hi my comp refused too shut down yesterday ,so reluctanly i had to hit the reset button on the comp ,this of course resulted in the enevitable scandisc starting on boot up {improper shutdown scandisc checking for errors}-scandisc is doing a thorough test and automatically fixing errors-my question is i seem to remember reading somewhere for scandisc to preform its task correctly you have too shut all the programs down except sys tray and explorer -i think ,is this right?-have tried running scandisc in safe mode and evevn after 5 hors scandisc still hasn't finished -my harddrive is 40 gig and win me is fully updated by windows update,incidently i have reformatted thhis drive numerous times and after a little while i get scandisc problems ,mostley due to improper shutdown ,all i want to do is to let scandisc complete its task ,and for me not to get the scandisc running every time i boot up,your help as allways is greatfully recieved,cheers hol pol.
