    Friends PC running Win XP Home occasionally fails to boot. Hangs at splash screen. Tried running chkdsk c: \r with following result:

    THE TYPE OF THE FILE SYSTEM IS NTFS.
    CANNOT LOCK CURRENT DRIVE

    CHKDSK CANNOT RUN BECAUSE THE VOLUME IS IN USE BY ANOTHER PROCESS. WOULD LIKE TO SCHEDULE THIS VOLUME TO BE CHECKED THE NEXT TIME THE SYSTEM RESTARTS? (Y/N)

    Opinions???

    That is the usual message received. You simply agree and when you restart the chkdsk will run
    You then go Control Panel, Admin Tools, event viewer, click application in left pane and then when that log has loaded, click the source column heading once. That sorts them in alphabetical order. You then find the winlogon entry that relates to the chkdsk and double click to open it.
    If there are reports that you are unsure of on that chkdsk, click once on the double page symbol to the right of the window near to the broad up and down arrows and then right click and paste on the reply.
    The chkdsk results will be attached
