    My OS is Windows ME. My system has two hard drives:
    Primary: C:\ 20 gigs. Secondary or slave: D:\ 6 Gigs.
    When I shutdowwn I use the start button and "Shutdown"
    The "Safe to turn off Computer" message appears and the computer shuts down properly.
    The problem appears when I restart the computer.
    A "Scandisk window pops up stating that because the compputer was not shut down properly the "D" drive must be scanned.
    I have let the "D" drive go throug the complete scan. I still get the Scandisk window the next time I restart the Computer.
    What can I do to eliminate this error mesage?

    There is an old Windows folder, however, the folder name has been changed to "OLD WINDOWS". Could this be the problem?

    Thanks, JLTBO.
