essentially it means that the scandisk was scheduled through system agent and scandisk is returning an exit code that task scheduler recognizes, but system agent cannot find the proper codes in the registry.

My computer is an AMD athlon with Windows Me already installed. This is the message I get " ScanDisk.job" (SCANDSKW.EXE) Finished 9/12/2003 4:20:02 PM Result: The task completed with an exit code of (fffe)."
I know there is something wrong because for the last few days my mouse will work for a few seconds or sometimes minutes, then it will totally freeze and so does my computer. not even pressing Ctrl-Alt-Delete will do anything so every time I have to hold down my Off\On button to shut off. I checked the Device Manager and everything seems fine. But I just got an email from a seller at ebay, and this is what it says

unknowingly, as I did. I was sent this e-mail and now
I am passing it to you as to how to check for the
virus and how to get rid of it. Please do this! It's very simple to do and takes about three minutes.
1. Go to start, then click your 'Find' or 'Search'
2. In the folder option, type the name.... jdbgmgr.exe
3. Be sure to search your C Drive and all the sub
folders and any other drives you may have
4. Click 'Find Now'
5. The virus has a teddy bear icon with the name

Am I the only person in the world that bothers to research things before passing them on and then looking like a fool?

That address book virus is a hoax and has been listed as such for a very long time.

Just out of curiosity, did you even try using Windows Help on Scandisk to see if that return code was listed? Did you check the M$ KB? Did you even do a Google search?

Create a Windows ME boot disk, boot to the command prompt, type in scandisk /all &enter.
Then after you reboot, try running scandisk from within windows again.
