Scandisc Problems, again!

  loughlan 09:55 03 Aug 2004

After a HD crash and reboot my W98se o/s worked well,even better, including Scandisc. But it now wil not finish once started. Defrag works ok. I have turned of the anti virus, and also ckecked for altered files to no avail.Scandisc works though the Win startup disc and in safe mode.
Can anyone think of what ealse I might try?

If it works OK in Safe Mode then why bother? I always run scandisc this way because of the same problem you have. It would take ages to get up to maybe 3% then would revert 1% again .. and so on. Defrag also runs better in Safe Mode.

Thanks you GRFT for the advise. I figgered out which program was causing the problem useing the CLOSE PROGRAM dialog box.
It turned out to be an add-on giveaway, unused, to a larger program in use. It was thus easy to delete it and return to normal working.

That's fine then. Maybe next I have that problem I'll try and find out what's causing it. Safe mode seems the easy way out.
