IMO...your approach is wrong in that you want to kill the messenger which is telling you what ought to take place, in what sequence...to have a more functional system.
The scan which is done automatically by XP...occurs because it is overdue. It is not a complete scan of the designated partition, in the sense that running the chkdsk /r command manually actually results in a more complete scan of the partition.
What I suggest is to manually run chkdsk /r (space between the k and /) from inside XP anytime you get a prompt that it needs to be run.
Start/Run...type chkdsk /r, hit OK or Enter. Black screen with white writing appears, informing you that chkdsk cannot run now and asking if you want it to run at next boot. Type Y and hit OK or Enter. Reboot the system and let the chkdsk /r command run to completion. The system will reboot when it is done.
After than, your defrag command should execute.
