    Hi thethe100,have you end tasked everything running prior to try to defrag and running scandisk?just press Ctrl ,Alt and then delete,and end task everything except Explorer and systray.Now try and run scandisk then defrag.If that doesnt work you can run both of them in safe mode.

    Hiya

    Also, disable your screensaver if you're running one.

    Regards

    Sometimes it works to run both of them in Safe Mode. That way, nothing will be running to interfere with them.

    :D
