My system is Win98, PIII. Ihave been trying to do a spot of maintenance on my computer by using system tools /scan disc. I close all operating programs by cntrl/alt/delete, I then go start/programs/accessories/system tools /Scan disc, but as soon as it starts everything locks up. Is there a solution to my problem?
I look foreward to your suggestions

Try running scandisk from safe mode.

... sometimes Scandisk takes a while correcting certain problems before moving on to the next process.

Leave it half an hour or so, then come back to it.

Also, programs in the system tray can cause stramge things to happen. Make sure as many of these as poss are closed down before you try Scandisk.

Hold F8 while re-booting and choose Dos prompt only. Then type scandisk /f
