Tell all.

Your post left out detail. Such as Zone Alarm. There is a discussion about ZA and CHKDSK issues. You should know about it and pester Zonelabs to fix it.

kaz, An easy solution to that problem is to go to the link below and scroll down to 48 and you'll see the "Disk Cleanup - Compress Old Files Freezes" Fix in the right column, download it and run it which should correct your problem.
"To use the Regedits: Save the REG File to your hard disk. Double click it and answer yes to the import prompt.

Just click on the words "Disk Cleanup-Compress Old Files Freezes" not the underscored word "Undo".

It should correct your problem.

Hope This Helps,
