Xp Scandisk isnt working!?

  Muckleface 19:11 02 Sep 2003


My PC has been running a little slow recently so I "cleaned" it up, defragged, etc, but for some reason Scandisk wont work?

I click on it and it starts up but then it gets stuck and doesnt do anything until I click cancel. And then when I got into "Task Manager" it says that the CPU is being used 100% by Scandisk!?

Any ideaS?

Are you using it in safe mode?

No, Im using it in normal mode. Ive used it before in normal mode and never had any problems.
