Running Scandisk/Defrag Blooks System

  loughlan 21:08 14 Dec 2004

When I run Scandisk and or Defrag on the WinME OP the PC freezes and I have to reboot to restart. I may have inadvertantly removed these files in an attempt to deworm my system. Have tried relaoding WinME but to no avail. Short of uloading WinME and starting all over, does anyone have any sugestions on how to retrieve the two lost files?

run sfc from the command prompt and see if it throws up any missing files.

Make sure the screen saver is disabled when running scandisk or defragmenter....TT

Have tried "sfc" but no go. Do not use a screen saver. So, not much else left to do but zap WinME and start again?

I confirm that there is no SFC in Windows ME.

Try defragmenting using click here

Before you get rid of Windows ME, make sure that you disable your antivirus program before you run defrag. I know when I had ME mine always threw a wobbly if I hadn't.

Tried with the anti-virus disabled without sucess. However, I have just upgraded my ant-virus from AVG 6.0 to 7.0, both free versions, also my Laptop. Both machines now blook when either Scandisk or Defrag are run in normal mode, but not in safe mode. Could this be a coincidence.
