When's the last u did a defrag

Do this before the defrag

EasyCleaner http://www.majorgeeks.com/download414.html

Use the clear files and Unnecessary files buttons - I do not recommend
using the Duplicates files button as many dupes are there on purpose.

In the unnecessary button I check the top 4 entries

The programs I was trying to open and would not, some of the "system" files that run them were undoubtly on a sector gone bad. I ran scandisk on startup option and then uninstalled the programs and reinstalled them and everything seems ok now.

Now I have a question, how can I display the "map" showing the scandisk procedure on this Windows 2000 computer, like 98 does? Does the 2000 scandisk from the startup in dos mark these bad places it finds?

Thanks,
Jraquel

If you already know your hard drive has bad sectors your hard drive is more than likely on the verge of failing and your performance will continue to deteriorate. Replace the drive while you can still access it. YOu may want to check with the manufacturer if it is still under warranty.
