Windows ME: Various HDD errors: virus?

By al ·
I have a Windows ME system with the following symptoms: Scandisk always runs on startup, there are about 3gbs of data on the drive yet Explorer reports 19 (of a possible 20), Defrag gets a "defrag006: Errors on drive. Run Scandisk", Scandisk (in Safe Mode, no screen saver), runs forever and reports no errors. Anyone know of a cause and, better yet, a fix (that does not involve reformattting and starting over!)?

Try this, in normal mode, close all running processes except Explorer, then run Scandisk

Tried that long ago, no solution. But life moves on. We reformatted and moved on. Issue is closed.
