Defrag, scandisk and system resourcesLocked
I can close all programs using ctrl + alt + del, so that only explorer is running. I then check system resources and only 80 % are free max. I have 128 MB DDR RAM. I should have around 85 % free by my estimates. I tried to defrag thinking, maybethat would free up some ram, but disk defrag says there are disk errors. I then tried to run scan disk to fix the errors, but it came up with a dialog box that said it had to restart 10 times because some other program is running and changing the hard drive (or something to that effect). All programs but Explorer are supposedly closed!
I have a number of questions.
1.) How can I free up RAM?
2.) Why is defrag not working?
3.) Why is scandisk not working?
4.) Is there a way I can monitor what my computer is doing (see what programs are running)?
