Cant run error check on HD'S with XP???

By vtecaccord96 ·
I just finished installing XP....and Norton Systemworks... but when i try to run an error chk on the HD (either windows untilies or Norton)i get a mssg saying Windows cant obtain exclusive access to the HD ... i had to schedule this chk once the computer restarted but it took MUCH longer......

What is causing this problem?? Any ideas?
I never had this prob with 98,ME, or 2000....ESPECIALLY with a Clean install!!!
Thanks for any help.....

Try shutting down anything running in the background except your Explorer. Once there is nothing else running in the background the utility has free and uninterrupted access to the HD. Do the CTRL+ALT+DEL and end task on all things running in the background except the explorer. Should run fine.

Tried that and actually caused WinXP to fully crash! Aparently Explorer is not the Only prog that needs to be on..... I have tried Safe Mode but still doesnt work? This is a CLEAN INSTALL... all i have is WinXP and Norton SW 2002... Thats it.... Anyone??
