Thread: Scandisk Keeps Restarting

  1. #1
    I am running Scan disk on my ME machine.

    When I do a full Scandisk ie media test, it comes up saying there are programs running in the background which make it keep restarting.

    I have disabled all the ones I can see using Ctrl Alt and Del.

    Any clues as to what else could be running or how to find out what is running ? and how to stop it ?

    I do not want to run it in Safe Mode as my next step will be to run Norton Optimiser and that will NOT run in Safe Mode and that keeps restaating also so I have to find the program that is causing the problem.

    Any suggestions


    What color is your Adkaf ?

    It's because you are trying to run it outside of safe mode. In any win9x system, always reboot to safemode before running scandisk. Sorry I can't come up with the shortcut key right now but it should say somewhere at boot.
    Windows is a collection of running processes and fat32 does not like to defrag "on the fly".
