I'm running windows 98. I run scan disc an defrag every month. Now when I try it stops running after a few minutes and locks the computer up. I have to power off the computer. Any help is appreciated.

start you computer in safe mode then try running scan disk and defrag, this should solve the problem. Also, you could try running a memory check on your computer to make sure it hasn't startrd having problems.

1. Try typing SFC in "Run." This stands for System File Checker." It will identify any system files which are corrupted, and will usually be able to repair them.

2. In Control Panel, "Add/Remove Programs," click on Windows Setup. Remove and reinstall "System Tools" using your installation CD. This procedure is rather tricky as it often removes other Accessories programs according to whether they are ticked or unticked.
