Scanning The Disk

by mrjc / November 16, 2004 3:52 AM PST

I am having trouble with the ScanDisk function. It is taking a long time to scan the disk or it will stop. A message comes up that suggest that I stop running some programs to allow the ScanDisk to finish. I don't have any programs running that I'm aware of. I turn on the computer and then go straight to ScanDisk. I have an HP Pavilion with Windows ME. I haven't been able to scan my disk ever since I got high speed internet. I'm not sure if that is causing any problems but, the stop running program message has always come up. Thank you.
