    Hi there Im running windowsME and I just cannot get the scan disk to complete its task it just keeps on going continuously and I have shut everything down I can think of,it appears to work ok till the very end and then it starts looking for "lost file fragments" and starts over,it's been ok until now and the only reason I found out was when trying to defrag and it wanted scan disk running first ...any ideas anyone? ....

    You did turn off your screensaver didn't you?

    If yes, have you tried running it in Safe Mode?
