Hi, I was about to give my C:\ Drive a much needed Scandisk + Defrag. But heres my problem. After scandisk goes through the file allocation thing, and checks folders it reaches Checking Files, then it just completely freezes my computer, and CTRL+ALT+DEL just brings me to a repeated 'Blue Screen of Death'

I have been reading other posts, and have already tried these
Closed all programs running in background, including Anti Virus.
Removed all Spyware on system.
Tried running scandisk in safe mode
Upgraded to Internet Explorer 6
Scanned all drives for viruses (none found)

After doing these I still lock up in the same spot on Scandisk.

A few other notes, don't know if they matter or not

Processor: AMD Duron @ 850Mz
OS: WinME
Hard Drive: 40GB, partitioned into C:, D:, E: and F:

Also, I was successfully abled to Scandisk my partition drives, I just can't seem to get it to work with the C:\, and I seriously need to Defrag. Any help would be greatly appreciated :D

I'm running WinME and theres no error

Right when it reaches Checking Files and Folders it just instantly locks up, not just Scandisk itself but the whole System.
