ScanDisk Loops (constantly restarts)Locked
Sorry if this appears so basic. I’m 63 year old newbie, please allow me some
I have Sony VAIO Pentium 233, upgraded 2 years ago to 12 GB drive (7gb free) and added ram to 96 SDRAM, running origional Windows 95b.
For 2 months Scandisk restarts, and I cannot Defrag prior to a complete Scan.
YES, I do Close Program all except Explorer and Systray. Tried in Safemode
and then someone suggested running Scan from a boot floppie in DOS. That did complete in about 3 minutes (20 minutes has been previous time for a Scan) but when I tried to Defrag, it reports disk errors that need to be fixed by Scandisk. I have NO screensaver on, and do not use any virus-scan running.
ANY SUGGESTIONS? I do not have freezes and no Blue Screen, but I have noticed a general SLOWDOWN.
