Cann not run de-frag or scan disc

  BIGKREM 18:34 01 Mar 2004

Hi everyone,
Today i managed to get rid of a "" virus i have been trying since to defragment but could not because of reported errors on disc, then scan disc just constantly re starts and is getting nowhere, it says because there are other programs running, which of course there are not. I wont be happy until i have performed both tasks, please help.
manuy thanks

It sounds to me as if you need to either run defrag etc from DOS or maybe have some help to shut all your programmes down.

There is a free little programme called Enditall.

It will shut everything down except systray at the click of a button.

Please double check you have got rid of that virus fully.
Best wishes,

You could try an improper shutdown by switching off at the mains, then scandisk will run auto and hopefully fix files etc.

What Operating System

Citadel that is not true for all OS's. Best to start if off in Dos on reboot

PS Have you tried running Safe Mode, and run it from there. To get into safe mode keep pressing F8 when your computer is starting up
