The scan has been cancelled because an error occurred in file: C:\Documents and Settings\John\Application Data\Microsoft\Office\Recent\BROWDZ.LNK"......

This error message is appearing on my sons computer when we try and defragment the drive.....Can anyone advise? Thanks in advance

The BROWDZ.LNK is a link to a document on your computer.

Send that file to the recycle bin and then defrag. You could always restore the file if you want.

You could also try starting the computer in safe mode by tapping the F8 key when the computer is starting and choosing SAFE MODE from the menu. Defrag as usual in safe mode.
