Which version of Windows? What are you doing when this occurs? What is the full error message?

XP
During or after defrag, norton speedisk crashes during defrag, xp defrag causes this message, then the message will not disappear from the screen and leaves a trail of sorts down the screen;
Message is "Win32, Error 5, access is denied,
Thank you for trying to help.
