Help!

I have a problem with my second PC, it won't let me Defrag or run the scan disc. All I get is the egg timer and I can't close the programme down, I just have to switch it off!

Any ideas? It is running Windows ME!

Try starting up in safe mode. Find out how, >here< or >here<. Then try running scandisk first. Next I would suggest checking for corrupted system files: Start-->Programs-->Accessories-->System tools-->System information. Then Tools-->System file checker (I think that's what it's called - can't remember off the top of my head). Check for corrupted system files, and replace ones that are damaged, as prompted. You'll probably need your Windows ME CD to hand.

I don't have a 'System file checker' but I have a Registry checker and when I run that it says there are no errors!

I ran 'scan disk' in thorough and then defregraged in 'safe mode' but when I went back to the 'normal mode' and tried to run them it still wouldn't let me!

Ils, I had that problem too. I found the best way to deal with it is just to pretend that nothing's wrong and continue as normal... :ninja:

I've done that for a while PJ, but I figured it wasn't doing the computer any good, so I thought it might be worth asking if someone had a quick solution!
