Defragging C drive won't move off 0%

When attempting to defragging C drive it won't move off 0%. It won't ScanDisk either, it just says it has attempted it 10 times. The OS is WinME. In the past it has always worked successfully. I've recently loaded McAfee Firewall and various games. I always turn off software that's running in the background. Any ideas why defrag and scandisk won't run now?

Try running in safemode (press F8 at startup).

Wow, that was a quick response. Yeap, running in safemode has meant defrag and scandisk tasks have now been completed successfully. Many many thanks indeed for the advice.
