My new computer has OS XP, I can't find scandisk. I used to scandisk/defrag/virus check on a regular basis on my old computer which was ME. Thank you.

My Computer, Right click your hard drive, Properties, Tools, Error Checking.

Your new computer will probably have a NTFS rather than FAT32 file system like that used on your Windows ME computer.
NTFS does not corrupt like FAT32 when it is shut down improperly therefore windows dosent run scan disk on it.

Powerless is correct in what he says.However, if you close down abnormally you will usually see scan disk(or is it check disc) appear.

XP = Check Disk.

I spent ages trying to find it, I put in a search for scandisk with no results. Now I can sleep tonight as it was realyy irritating me not finding it. Now I know it's Check Disk ! Cheers everyone.

To check your computer for damaged files you run the following: Start>Run and type the following
SFC /scannow this will repair any damaged files on your computer.
