I shut my PC off last night and when I re-started this morning I got the usaual " You have not shut etc" and then scandisk started but after 65% it said long file name found on drive c run SCANDISK EXE. I exited and did that but it stopped 2/3rds of the way through ie it froze and it had taken hours as I ckick fix automatically. I turned off and re -booted and ignored everything. But why would it freeze and can I just ignore it? I leave my pc all the time. Using win98se and 27gb hd.
