A small few months ago I told Diskeeper 9 to defragment the Master file Table and the Paging File (done at boot time). Along with that I told it to run CHKDSK on my hard drives just because it was an option. I had done this in the past several times with no problems, but this time when it got to my C drive and tried to run CHKDSK, it encountered an error and didn't run. The other drives were taken care of properly, then Windows booted up. I went to defragment my drives, but when I tried to start the process on the C drive, it said it couldn't defragment it because CHKDSK was scheduled to run on the next restart. Restarting it doesn't run CHKDSK anymore, so the error message just stays there, preventing me from defragmenting my hard drive (which has caused my computer to slow down, considering my C drive has Windows on it). What can I do to either remove the apparent scheduling of CHKDSK or get it to run properly? I'm running Windows 2000 with Service Pack 4. Thanks in advance for any help you might give me.
