    ok, im not sure where to put this because it deals with the hard drive and part with some software..

    anyways,

    when i tried to defrag, it says i needed to do a scan disc because it wasnt working, so i went to scan disc, and it said it had to restart 10 times and still didnt work and theres probably something wrong with my hard drive..

    so whats going on?

    just press ALT-CTRL-Delete and stop all processes except for Systray and Explorer. Run defrag and then reboot your machine.
