Currently running on windows 98, i tried to run the defragmentor but that faied owing to some errors and i was advised to run Scan Disk. The problem now is that scan disk does not seem to be running correctly, and i get the message "scan disk has restarted 10 times, some processes still working will slow this down", i cant see what these processes are or how to get either scan disk or defragmentor to work correctly,

help please,

michael

Try booting into safe mode (F5 as pc is booting up and running scan disk from there. Also disable your screensaver as this can make scan disk restart when it kicks in. If you run defrag from safe mode as well it should take less time.
