Failure of Disk Cleanup and Drive Space

By tra ·
Both Disk Cleanup and Drive Space programs lock up my computer when they are executed from the systems tools menu. I have applied all the patches to Windows 98 that I know of, but these two programs still fail. I have tried copying drvspace.exe fromanother system with no success.

Going to have to work on that shutdown problem first then. Can you run a short & /or long Scandisk w/ the "Automatically Fix Errors" box checked? If so, shut off all open programs and run them both, short then full first. Then use a start-up disk totry to get to "Safe Mode".

Please disable your Norton Antivirus before you make this.
Sometimes, the Norton or other antivirus problems interferes with that operation.

Plus, disable the sleep mode, sometimes it causes crash to this operation.

May God bless you in this!
