Having a problem getting CHKDSK to Run, after BSOD,

Disable or unistall any anti-virus, disk defragmentation or backup utilities. Check your hard drive configuration, and check for any updated drivers. Run CHKDSK /F to check
for hard drive corruption, and then restart your computer.

If possible, please make reference to the above utilities, . . I'm not sure I know what that means ?

I would really like to know what is meant by check for updated drivers, I am assuming that it means all drivers, that has got to be quite a job !

Technical Information:

*** STOP: 0x00000024 (0x001902FE, 0xF4ADA5FC, 0xF4ADA2F8, 0x8026AF3c)

1.Unchecked SuperAnti-in Startup, + ADUSERMON.EXE Active Disk User Monitor
scription Active Disk User Monitor File Location on your Computer

2. From: C:\WINDOWS\system32\CHKDSK.exe (Black Screen)
The type of the file system is NTFS.
Cannot lock current drive.

CHKDSK cannot run because the volume is in use by another
process. Would you like to schedule this volume to be checked the next time the system restarts? (Y/N)
Comment: This message ran twice once before and after restart.

If you try and run CHKDSK on the C: drive, you can get that message. It's because the volume (meaning your C: drive) is in use. It is then offering to do the chkdsk at the next startup. You should answer YES.

Try that.
