Have you downloaded, installed or removed anything lately? Run a defrag and scandisk (whilst you can)

Use system restore if needs be..

ME oops!

I have that happen to me on my ME computer too. I find that if I have an improper shutdown, I cancel out of the scandiak at startup. I then close all the programs down in the task manager (ctrl+alt+del) exept for 'explorer' and 'systray'

Then I run scandisk and it works!

Hope this helps :)

I know it's bad netiquette, but I cannot type today!

It should be scandisk and except :)

Try disabling all running programs ctrl, alt & delete click on all EXCEPT explorer and systray then end task, also disable screensaver and quicklaunch taskbar (right click on empty grey part next to quicklaunch select toolbars,then untick quicklaunch) don't forget to put it back later. This should allow scandisk to run whilst the other problem is sorted.
