    I was wondering if someone could help me with something... Just to let you
    know, I am no expert on computers... about a "medium" knowledge base.
    Anyhow, I was wondering if the information I am about to give you is
    letting me know that my hard drive is about to crash??
    Here are my specs:
    HP 6835
    800 MHz Intel Celeron Processor
    128 MB SDRAM
    30 GB Ultra DMA Hard Drive
    with a 4x (slow) CD RW Drive
    Running Windows ME version 4.90.3000
    I have an HP PSC 750 printer attached thru USB
    I have a Palm doc attached thru USB
    I primarily use my computer for personal use... and internet, with email

    Some time in April of 2002 my Norton Antivirus Program caught and
    deleted that nasty Klez virus...
    Here is what is happening:
    With only these programs running (Explorer, Systray & Osd), I tried to
    perform a thorough defrag and disk scan, as I normally do every couple
    weeks... during the defrag, the program had to restart about 6 or 7
    times because it kept saying the drive's contents had changed.
    Eventually, the defrag completed. On the other hand, the scan disk
    could not finish... at least I didn't let it. During the scan disk,
    operation stops after every 15,000 (approx.) clusters on the disk
    surface have been scanned. The message is that Windows or another
    program is writing to the hard drive. At that rate it would have to
    start 122 times to finish the scan of 1,830,985 clusters. I only
    noticed this particular problem after having ripped some songs for my
    mp3 player, however... my machine just really hasn't seemed right for a
    long time... even before the klez virus got in. Sounds like something
    major?? What should I do?? Thanks in advance for your suggestions.

    Sounds more like you have a bunch of hidden junk running in the background. Go here
    http://www.lurkhere.com/~nicefiles/

    and download startuplist 1.5 run the program then copy and paste your results in this thread. While you are there, also get SpyBot search and destry. You will probably need that after we see your startups.

    Let us know

    Rugrat,

    Actually, it doesn't look to bad to me. I am no expert but, the only thing I see that could be causing a problem is Backweb, see here for more info,
    http://www.cexx.org/dlgli.htm

    You may want to report this post to a moderater (click report at the top right of the post) and ask them to move it to security so the people who know what they are seeing can have another look. I would also suggest booting into safe mode and run scandisk and defrag from there. Running spybot would be a good thing. See this post and the comments from Tony Klein for better instruction,

    I tried various things to solve my problem with the scan disk situation and I decided to reinstall windows on my machine. I have had some trouble and had to tweak(still tweaking).
    Thank you all for all your help.
