Can you help a silver surfer who has no knowledge of the technical section of computers?
My computer seems to freeze quite often and when I tried to run Scandisk it does not complete the scan and totally freezes me out.
A error message reads:-
The following files or folder are crosslinked:
C;\WINDOWS\TEMP\VSSDKM5Q.2RD
C:\PQSC\CPS\0001D8\FILES\001\0482F2.DAT
I use Windows ME as my operating system.
Hope somebody can help a confused Granny.

Many thanks

Have a read of this article click here which explains how to use the Advanced option in Scandisk to resolve this problem.

Open the folder C:\Windows\Temp and delete everything in there that Windows will allow you to.
