    Trying to clean up the wife's system, which has not been accomplished in a VERY long time.
    Tried to do a "Defrag", was told it had to do a "Check disk" first.
    When I set it to accomplish that with the next "Restart", I was then prompted with 'cannot open volume for direct access check disk'

    Sooooo, wizards.... your thoughts?
    Thanks... as always.
