Yes Liz but it's hidden and is called chckdisc or error checking. Open "My Computer", right click on whichever drive you want to scan disc and choose properties. Click on the "tools" tab and where it says "error checking", click "check now". You will get a popup that will say something like, "do you want to schedule it". I can't remember exactly what it says but it's something like that. The next time that you reboot, it will go to the scandisc screen instead of in Windows. It will take a while to do like it did in the other versions of windows. You can not do anything else on the computer while it's scanning. Hope this helps.
When I ran ME I used the disk cleanup, scandisk and defragged regularly. Sounds silly but my problem is I cannot find the scandisk on XP Home. Is there one?
