    I'm running Windows Me and my ScanDisk keeps getting restarted. Nomatter what happens, if ScanDisk runs at start-up or if I just run it, it keeps restarting. What's going on?:confused:

    Hi neveranything, Welcome to TSG!!!
    You have something running in the background that is accessing your hard drive. Check to see what is running in the system tray by clock and disable them. Then try scandisk. You can also Ctrl-Alt-Delete and end task on everything except explorer and systemtray.
